Working together to provide everyone the comforts of home.

The Green Chair Project works to provide the essentials of home to all.

Home furnishings and essential items are donated from our community and reused for families and individuals in Wake County who have transitioned from homelessness, crisis or disaster.

For a small fee, clients working with case managers from over 90 partner agencies can select furniture, linens, cookware and accessories to outfit their new homes. The Green Chair experience promotes the idea of choice and empowers clients as they begin to rebuild. 

The Green Chair Project Story

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 were also conscious of the thousands of families attempting to move out of homelessness that 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.
