Furnishing Homes with Hope

Flourish Furnishings (FF) is the only furniture bank in the Kansas City area. FF provides essential furniture and home furnishings to individuals and families who have obtained housing, but due to limited financial resources, are unable to purchase basic household goods.

FF partners with over 60 referral organizations (including domestic violence agencies, mental health centers, and homeless shelters) to serve clients who are fighting for housing stability. Through a supportive and personalized shopping experience, FF empowers clients to select furniture and furnishings based on their own 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 volunteer teams at our 28,000 square-foot warehouse/showroom in Grandview, Missouri.
