Home Again. Two simple words. But establishing a home isn’t always simple. For those in transition from situations of abuse, homelessness, prison or war, for the un and under-employed or for those with disabilities, the struggle to create a new life is just starting. Part of this struggle involves establishing a home. For those lacking the means or social connections to make that happen, Home Again Furniture Bank can assist.
Home Again Furniture Bank is a nonprofit organization that provides gently-used furniture and household items to individuals and families in need. Based in St. John’s, Home Again works through a referral system of local agencies to ensure that everyone has a bed to sleep in.
Central to Home Again is a cycle of giving and receiving that provides our most vulnerable citizens the means to create a home. In providing furniture, Home Again also helps to empower individuals and families as they rebuild their lives. Getting a good night sleep on a proper bed makes moving forward seem feasible. Having a sofa to relax on with family makes life more enjoyable. Being able to offer family and friends a chair to sit on, or a table to gather around, brings dignity and pride.
Home Again helps to build pride in homes and pride in our community. Home Again is an eco-friendly charity. Not only does our program help families, but we also provide a positive ecological impact as we divert furniture and home furnishings destined for local landfills.
