Home Again works with 34 partner agencies and organizations who refer their clients. All of our referring partners are listed here.
Furniture banks are registered charities, not-for-profit organizations or social enterprises designed to provide gently-used household furnishings to individuals and families in need, at little or no cost.
The movement, which originated in the United States, is now firmly established and continuing to gain momentum in Canada. The basic model involves gently used furniture being donated by people who no longer use it, and transferred to those who are struggling financially to furnish their own homes.
Furniture banks provide some of the most vulnerable citizens the means to create a true home.
