Bob’s Supports Deborah’s Place During Women’s History Month

In recognition of Women’s History Month, Bob’s Discount Furniture donated 34 mattresses to Deborah’s Place in Chicago. For nearly 40 years, Deborah’s Place has offered supportive housing and services for single women.

A group of Bob’s employees from the South Loop store location, volunteered at the newly opened Conservatory Apartments to help prepare rooms for their first residents.

“We’re incredibly grateful to Bob’s Discount Furniture, who donated thirty-four mattresses to Deborah’s Place, ensuring that each woman who ends her homelessness with us has a comfortable place to rest and heal,” said Erin Ellis, Communications Coordinator.

The Bob’s teamed joined Deborah’s Place staff, their Board of Directors and other volunteers from Real Estate Finance Forum to set up the new beds, and prepare the apartments to welcome residents.


“At Bob’s, we are committed to supporting organizations like Deborah’s Place, which strive to end homelessness and offer wraparound support for successful outcomes,” said Lindsay Ruszczyk, Director of Communications and Community Outreach, Bob’s Discount Furniture. “It’s even more meaningful to our organization when our employees have the opportunity to volunteer for the causes we support and learn about the lasting impact a good night’s sleep can have on people who need it most.”


“For many of these women, this new apartment will be their first stable home in years, as they exit a cycle of chronic homelessness,” said Erin. “As they start this new chapter, case managers will help them to pursue their goals and connect them to the resources they need to achieve them.”
