Flourish Furnishings

THE Furniture Bank of Kansas City

Who We Are

Flourish Furnishings is the only not-for-profit furniture bank in the Kansas City area. We collect, prepare, and distribute donated furnishings and home essentials to offer a “hand up” by meeting the household furnishings needs of those on the margins in KC. 

Flourish Furnishings is a 501(c)(3) designated charity.

2021 IMPACT:


Families Furnished

Items Distrubuted

Children with beds


It takes hundreds of volunteers for the Flourish Furnishings to operate.  Our volunteers’ help ranges from woodworking, sewing, packing, shopping, and moving.  We’d love to have you join one of our teams!


Help us improve the lives of people transitioning out of homelessness and poverty in the metro Kansas City area. Whether in-kind or monetary, every little bit helps us furnish homes with hope so our clients can FLOURISH.


To ensure that our clients are provided wrap-around services, we work exclusively through case worker referrals from metro community partners.
