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’s Story

Both trained in real estate home staging, Jackie Craig and Beth Smoot found that homeowners had too much stuff in their homes—stuff they didn’t want to go to waste but no longer had a need for.

After seeing this again and again, the pair founded The Green Chair Project in 2010 as a new home for those items, as well as a “green” way to reuse household items to benefit their neighbors in need.
