“Everything I had was a hand me down. My couch was falling apart and had boards under the cushion so people didn’t fall through. It means the world to me to have my house furnished.”

– Christopher Allen

About Us

Our Mission

Furnishing Hope mission is to facilitate healing, reduce stress and encourage the overall feeling of security for our families as they transition to independent living. We accomplish this by providing the furniture and supplies needed to create a nurturing home.

Our Purpose

Furnishing Hope transforms empty spaces into peaceful and comfortable homes, complete with furniture, new mattresses, bedding, bathroom and kitchenware which lessons the burden and provides one less suffering to endure.

Our Goal

In cooperation with non-profits throughout California, military hospitals and the VA we have furnished over 350 homes for transitioning families, including over 250 for our wounded heroes. This year we plan to furnish 100 more. We understand the tremendous and unique challenges our transitioning wounded heroes and women with children face. We are successful when we see the smile on their face, tears in their eyes and the relief in knowing they will have a place where they can heal and their family can thrive. We CAN and WILL make a difference.

How Furnishing Hope Started

Beth Phillips has been a designer in Orange County, California for over 30 years. She watched clients throw away thousands of dollars in furniture when construction was complete on their new home and they were ready to move in with their new furniture. She saw the waste and sought a way to bring together the people who had too little and the people who had more than enough. One day when thumbing through magazines, she saw an article about Habitat for Humanity. The article highlighted a woman and her disabled child opening the door to a simple, affordable, new, yet empty home. Beth wondered where this child going to sleep that night. She had a meeting with Habitat for Humanity within a week. After that meeting she rented a truck and started picking up furniture. Since 2003, Beth developed Furnishing Hope from an idea into a 501 (c) (3) tax exempt non-profit organization and has furnished over 350 homes.


Furnishing Hope exists to create a much needed nurturing environment so that families can recover from their loss, adjust to their disabilities and build their future. We turn houses into homes, with design and care.

Furnishing Hope is a 501(c)(3) tax exempt, non-denominational, organization.
