Officials with the Furniture Bank of Central Ohio want to start selling sofas and coffee tables and recliners in order to keep giving away sofas and coffee tables and recliners.
It's called "social enterprise," and it's what nonprofit organizations have to do these days to survive, according to Steve Votaw, president of the Furniture Bank of Central Ohio.
"It's a new push in the nonprofit community," he said last week as work progressed on the social enterprise that will eventually assist this particular nonprofit to provide furniture to those in need.
...
It was a year ago this week that officials with the Furniture Bank of Central Ohio visited a thrift store being operated in Cleveland to help that city's furniture bank with funding, according to Votaw. A committee of local board members studied similar operations around the country before deciding to settle on the model of the Cleveland Furniture Bank, he said.
After electing to go ahead with the thrift-store approach, Furniture Bank officials worked with NAI Ohio Equities to identify potential sites. The committee and personnel looked at a dozen possible spots before settling on the former carpet store.
"We fell in love with this location because it's in a commercial strip," Votaw said. "It serves our target market, which is folks who have an income level that they would buy thrift-store furniture."
Although the nonprofit organization is based on Yale Avenue in Franklinton, Votaw said a large percentage of clients live in the Northland area.
...
It will also be run by plenty of volunteers, according to Votaw, and offer volunteer opportunities for nearby residents.
...
The Cleveland Furniture Bank thrift store brings in about $1 million a year, Votaw said.
"That's our goal, but not right away," he added.
For the first year of operation, officials hope Furniture With a Heart sales cover operating expenses, Votaw said.
"Then we hope that in year two, we can have a 20-percent margin," he said.
If Furniture With a Heart can begin generating $1 million a year like the thrift store in Cleveland, the Furniture Bank of Central Ohio could serve an additional 1,000 families, according to Votaw.

"We knew we had to diversify our funding because the demand is greater than our capacity to serve," Steve Votaw, president of Furniture Bank, told me. "There's not a lot of new government money or philanthropic dollars, so we were looking strategically at what revenue streams have the potential to grow and social enterprise is the focus at this point."
