The Chicago Furniture Bank collects donations of gently used furniture and household goods and distributes them to families and individuals transitioning into supportive housing. Together with our partner organizations, we help Chicagoans in need by providing complete furnishing packages that turn empty spaces into comfortable homes.


Social enterprise is not just a new industry. It is a movement. Be a part of the movement. Connect with local businesses that have a mission in which you believe. Discover developments on a national and local level. Establish a relationship with a mentor. Have your questions answer in our community forum.


Come join the conversation! Attend one of our events and engage in a fun, social environment. Meet connections – nonprofits, for profits and everyone in between – who are interested in the social enterprise space. Share ideas, resources, information, and project opportunities.


Find local social enterprises and be seen on the social enterprise member page of our website. As we support each other, the whole community grows! Select members are highlighted in our blog, on social media, and in topic-specific panels.


Are you looking for a new career path? Check out our job boards. Need top talent for your social enterprise? Create a job posting! Members also have exclusive access to our resource center where they can find information on all stages of building and growing a social enterprise.

“Social entrepreneurs are not content just to give a fish or teach how to fish. They will not rest until they have revolutionized the fishing industry.”
