JRCC Furniture Depot BLOG POST #1- Who We Are

The JRCC Furniture Depot is a service provided to help those with limited means to furnish their homes. Since it’s founding in 1985 as a humble community service making connections between people who wanted to donate their furniture with people who needed it, the JRCC Furniture depot has expanded to become a central community service which helps those in need furnish their home and picks up furniture from those donors!

Fast forward to 2017- the JRCC Furniture Depot has become a community service which has had partnerships from more than 60 referral agencies and has been working with over 200 case workers to help service York Region better- and is still growing! In 2017 alone we helped 2,250 clients and gave away 5,902 furniture items!!

Aside from servicing a large volume of clients in need at the JRCC Furniture depot- we believe that every client deserves respect and confidentiality when they come to us in their time of need.
