CEA Curtain Bank

The CEA Curtain Bank takes donated curtains and adjusts and lines them to fit your window measurements. Curtains are provided at no charge to all those who cannot afford new ones.


Good quality, lined curtains that fit your windows well are an essential part of a warm, energy efficient home. It can be a struggle to find affordable curtains of a good quality.  If your curtains are thin, single layered, torn, or poorly fitting, and you cannot afford new ones, contact us today.


The Curtain Bank is a free service. However, our Curtain Bank is not fully funded and relies of further donations to keep going for future clients. We would like to encourage all those using the Curtain Bank to give to your ability. If you are experiencing serious financial hardship we do not want any donation and will be honoured to be able to help you. Donations can be made in cash to our donation box at the Curtain Bank or through our Givealittle pageWe are very grateful for all donations, big and small.


We can also provide curtains for landlords for their rental properties. We would like to encourage landlords to donate $15 per curtain set.


CEA Mobile curtain bank

CEA Curtain Bank offers a mobile service to enable us to reach those within the community who cannot travel into the Curtain Bank itself. If you are elderly, have a medical condition, or cannot access transport easily, please contact us about this service.
