Urban Furniture


Located in Oakland’s Grand-Lake commercial district, urban furniture is a second hand furniture store that sells quality used furniture while serving as a platform to provide education and on-the-job training to low-income single moms in Oakland. On any given business day, our moms experience learning and confidence in real time. Learning occurs as a mom counts money and calculates percentages to negotiate discounts. Advanced learning occurs as a mom manages store inventory, accrues donation items and completes administrative tasks.Empowerment occurs as a mom communicates to customers, identifies their needs, directs them to a product and completes a sale. Empowerment also occurs as a mom undergoes individual self-esteem coaching. These realities are what we mean when we say urban furniture is ‘more than a furniture store.’
