Furnishing Homes with Hope

Flourish Furnishings (FF) provides essential furniture and home furnishings to people in the Kansas City area who have a home or apartment in which to live, but due to limited financial resources, are unable to purchase basic household goods.

FF partners with over 60 agencies in the Kansas City metropolitan area (including domestic violence shelters, mental health agencies and homeless shelters) to serve clients who are fighting for housing stability. Through a supportive and personalized shopping experience, FF empowers clients and families to select their own furniture and furnishings based on their needs and preferences, free of charge – to fill their home with items that they have been unable to obtain through their own limited resources.

Quality donated items (including bedframes, mattresses, kitchen tables, sofas, lamps, linens and dishware) are collected, cleaned, and pre-sorted by our volunteer teams to have available for clients at our 28,000 square-foot warehouse in Grandview, Missouri. This provides clients with many furnishing types and styles from which to choose. FF is the only agency of its kind in the Kansas City region, serving over 3,000 household members each year.
