The Salvation Army offers furniture vouchers that people in need can use to receive free furniture from a Salvation Army store. To redeem the voucher, it is necessary to go the store that provided the voucher and claim the furniture that is offered.
There are specific requirements that need to be met in order to receive a furniture voucher, which usually include being below a specific level of income and having specified hardships. In many cases, furniture vouchers are given only to families or individuals whose furniture was destroyed in a flood or fire, although this is not always the case.
It is necessary to schedule an appointment with the local Salvation Army store so the staff can determine whether an individual or family qualifies for any vouchers or other assistance. In addition to furniture vouchers, the organization also offers vouchers for clothing, food and other necessities, or to help low-income individuals pay for medications. The Salvation Army may also be able to provide assistance to help those with financial problems pay their rent or utility bills.
All of these programs are mostly paid for through the clothing, furniture and other goods that are sold by the Salvation Army stores across the country.
