Home Again Furniture Bank is a nonprofit organization that aims to end furniture poverty in the Northeast Avalon region. To do this, they collect donations of gently-used furniture to redistribute to those referred.
Home Again is the only furniture bank in the region and therefore, the only organization where you can donate your furniture knowing that it will not be resold, but delivered for free to some of the region’s most vulnerable. Home Again has partnered with many local agencies and organizations that refer their clients for their furniture needs.
Often when people are downsizing, moving houses, or renovating, they have furniture they no longer need.
Home Again volunteers deliver beds to those who had been sleeping on floors or deflating air mattresses. They deliver tables to those who had been eating from kitchen counters or off cardboard box tables and sofas to those who had nowhere to sit and relax. Each year, hundreds of houses are turned into homes with the free delivery of furniture. That means hundreds of lives are transformed as individuals and families have opportunities for better sleep, increased connections and healthier relationships.
A well-furnished home increases comfort, dignity and stability. Home Again gives gently-used furniture a new home and helps transform lives.
“A home is more than four walls and a roof. It’s the sofa and chairs to comfortably sit with family and friends, it’s a table to share meals around, it’s a bed to lay down on to have a good night’s sleep. A well-furnished home is safer and healthier - mentally and physically, and brings stability.” — Maureen Lymburner, Director of Development, Home Again Furniture Bank.
“Before learning of Home Again, I was not motivated to find housing because I thought there was no chance for me to get furniture and I felt overwhelmed... It was amazing to go from being in and out of care for so long… to have my own furnished place... For the last two years, I have had stable housing and a full-time job. That means more time to focus on my health instead of where to sleep each night.” — Leanna, Furniture Recipient
