The Green Chair Project reuses furnishings donated by our community to help our neighbors in need facing the challenges of homelessness, crisis and disaster. Lives change when families and individuals are nurtured and sustained in well-equipped homes.

Jackie Craig and Beth Smoot

Real estate home stagers Jackie Craig and Beth Smoot found that homeowners had too much stuff in their homes—stuff that no one wanted to waste, but was no longer needed. Jackie and Beth realized thousands of families attempting to move out of homelessness could not afford furniture and basic household items without assistance. With this in mind, the pair founded The Green Chair Project in 2010 to collect and reuse essential furnishings to benefit their Wake County neighbors in need.
