The team of Acts 4 understands this is a tough time for those requesting items, especially furniture. We provide a loving and discrete process, complete with a review of the client’s circumstances that make them eligible to receive furniture. Below are basic guidelines to follow when the need for furniture is great.

Who Receives Furniture?

Residence of the Greater Waterbury area

How Do I Receive Furniture?

To be considered for receiving furniture from Acts 4, clients are asked to apply in person at our facility located on 1713 Thomaston Ave. on Wednesday and Fridays between 10:00AM and 1:00PM. We will answer any questions regarding our procedure for receiving furniture at that time. Please bring a photo ID and papers showing what aid you receive. Persons in need of furniture are expected to pay a fee, or volunteer with us based on their needs. Once the interview and fee and/or volunteer hours are complete, arrangements will be made for a home visit to survey the client’s situation and locate the apartment for delivery. Delivery will be arranged after completion of the first two steps. A limit of 30 family requests will be accepted each month.

Where Do I Go if I Need…?
