Help Give Your
Neighbours
Comfort

                               

On any given day, over 100 people in your community are living without essential furniture, like beds, couches and dining tables. This includes people who have experienced loss, seniors, new Canadians, those coming out of the foster or shelter system, previously incarcerated individuals, and even families with young children.

With your help Home Again collects and redistributes gently-used furniture to your neighbours who need it most. As the only furniture bank serving the Northeast Avalon, Home Again aims to end furniture poverty for good one delivery at a time.  

Each week, Home Again delivers beds, sofas, tables and other essentials to an average of 10 homes. These neighbours had previously been sleeping on floors or eating from cardboard box 'tables'. Adam, who has cerebral palsy, had tears of joy when he described receiving a bed after months of discomfort and interrupted sleep on the floor.

“I would not want anybody to go through what I had to go through...I am so grateful to [Home Again] for helping me to get a bed and get my life back on track... It’s made a huge difference in my life.” 

With your help, Home Again Furniture Bank transforms homes and lives, like Adam’s, every single week. We do this at absolutely no cost to the recipient because we believe everyone deserves the comfort, dignity and stability of a well-furnished home. 

As the only furniture bank in the region, Home Again provides a unique and essential service, delivering comfort, stability, security and hope to our vulnerable neighbours.

Homes Furnished

Each year, over 500 hundred homes, and lives, are transformed by the free delivery of furniture. One single mother shared:

My daughter was immediately overjoyed at having a real bed and a desk to do her homework!... I feel like we are much better equipped now to begin the process of healing and hopefully thriving as a family. (My daughter wanted me to add that maybe now she can also invite friends over!) Thank you for your contributions to our new home.”

There are still over 100 people, like this single mom, who are waiting for furniture you can help change that today!

Volunteers

Without volunteers like you, we wouldn't be able to help so many of your neighbours receive the comfort, stability and dignity they deserve. Whether you're moving furniture, assisting with event planning or engaging on a committee, our volunteers transform homes and lives throughout the region. 

You can feel just like this volunteer when you dedicate your time to Home Again:

“Volunteering with Home Again was one of the most rewarding experiences of my life...leaving me feeling moved, grateful and inspired… One client was new to Canada and had two duffel bags of clothes and an air mattress in his apartment when we arrived. We fitted him out with a couch, bed, bookshelf, nightstands and dresser. As we were leaving, he thanked us with such sincerity and said, ‘You’ve changed everything for me.’ I have tears in my eyes remembering it.”
