About

Love Lives Here.

As a nonprofit organization built on compassion, dignity, and the transformative power of design, we partner with volunteers and community organizations to offer a hand up to Atlanta families.

We support families who have recently transitioned from housing insecurity and are working hard for a better future. Our volunteer designers use donated furniture and décor to create warm homes and change lives.

When we founded Furnish with Love in 2019, our goal was to create spaces that allow families to focus on each other and their future. Each year since, we've continued to deliver on the promise of creating functional and beautiful living environments with all the furnishings families need to feel at home and thrive.

Transformative Power of Design
