“At Center44 we are in the business of assisting people in furnishing their dream homes. Furnish a Future provides assistance to those for whom a home is truly a dream.

We are honored to sponsor this event in support of the valiant efforts of the Partnership for the Homeless,” says Paul Plumadore of Center44.
“We’re extremely grateful to Center44 and New York Spaces for their creative energy in organizing such a special event to help Furnish a Future—a key program of The Partnership for the Homeless and the only furniture bank in NYC providing high-quality free furniture and household items to thousands of formerly homeless families as they become housed in new neighborhoods throughout the City. Center44 and New York Spaces are joining the growing community of compassionate and caring New Yorkers who believe that every New Yorker deserves a great home,” says Arnold Cohen, President & CEO of The Partnership for the Homeless.
