A New Homecoming for Home Again
April 11, 2022

Back 7 years ago, Home Again Furniture Bank started as an idea amongst a diverse group of community-minded people who came together to respond to a prevalent issue identified in our region: furniture poverty. Many of those founding members remain as employees, partners, volunteers and donors today.

Since that small seed was planted in 2015, Home Again has blossomed into an established organization with growing brand awareness; strong corporate, government and community partnerships; a Board of Directors; and a busy 5-person team (2 f/t, 3 p/t) supported by MANY volunteers. To date, 2109 homes have been furnished, 2058 donors have supported those in need, and 431 tonnes of furniture have been saved from a landfill.

The Anglican Diocese of Eastern Newfoundland and Labrador came on board in the very early days to be the foundation we needed to build what we have today. Until recently, Home Again was operating under the umbrella of the Parish of the Ascension. Today, we’re proud to publicly announce that Home Again is now its own stand-alone, fully incorporated organization with our own charitable status. We are deeply grateful for the support from the Anglican Dioceses, and our partnership remains strong through their continued financial and in-kind support, and our intake of clients referred through participating parishes.

While this announcement may sound administrative, it symbolizes much more than that - our next chapter. One of growth, sustainability and new initiatives that will enhance our efforts in ensuring the dignity, stability, wellness and comfort a well-furnished home brings to those we serve.
