Presenting: Again & Again Furniture and Decor Thrift
November 9, 2022
At Home Again, we're always grateful to anyone who thinks of us when they are parting with their furniture. Sometimes, certain furniture pieces may not be suitable for our clients given size, practicality or purpose, and because of this, we couldn't accept them. Until now!
The thrift store offers more convenience to our donors by allowing us to accept all of their furniture, while helping Home Again become more sustainable by selling pieces (large cabinets, armoires, vintage/antique or unique items that serve a decorative purpose) that we'd otherwise have to leave behind. All proceeds from sales will go back to Home Again and the continuation of delivering comfort, dignity and stability to those who need it most. This is needed now, more than ever, as demand for Home Again's service continues to dramatically increase.
This social enterprise will not only support the work of Home Again, it will provide employment opportunities, volunteer opportunities and allow us to partner with other groups and organizations. Stay tuned for more info that front!
Again & Again opens to the public on Saturday, November 12 at 10AM, and from there the regular hours of operation are Wednesday to Saturday - 10:00AM - 6:00PM. It's located at 25 Hebron Way. Follow Again & Again on Instagram & Facebook: @thriftagainandagain
Introducing Heads Without Beds: Leaders Edition
October 3, 2022
Today we launch the first-ever Heads Without Beds: Leaders Edition campaign.
Building on the engagement and success we experienced with our community Heads Without Beds campaign over the years, this edition brings together inspiring community & business leaders to raise awareness and funds to support the free delivery of beds, sofas, tables and other furnishings to families and individuals of all ages, backgrounds and circumstances.
By sleeping without their bed for just one night and finding sponsors to support their efforts, participants are helping to ensure others in our region won’t have to do without. Every head deserves a bed.
Meet the "Heads" and support them here: www.headswithoutbedsleaders.ca

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.
