The Furniture Bank Veteran Program

Bruce and Thurston_2In partnership with the United Way of Greater Atlanta, the Furniture Bank trains and prepares previously-homeless Veterans for careers in the warehouse or truck driving industry.

Since February of 2014, interns have worked at the Furniture Bank for an eight-week period, receiving a small stipend and transportation assistance. After four weeks, interns choose between a Truck Driving or Warehouse track. Truck driver interns receive a scholarship to CDL-A training school, preparing them for a career in truck driving. Warehouse interns obtain their forklift certification and are connected to warehouse job openings.
