Flourish Furniture Bank

  Where Compassion Meets Sustainabilty

Who We Are

Flourish Furniture Bank 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 Furniture Bank is a 501(c)(3) designated charity and has Platinum charity status with Guidestar.

2022 IMPACT:


Individuals Furnished

Items Distrubuted

Children with beds


It takes hundreds of volunteers to serve our families.  Our volunteers contribute in woodworking, sewing, packing, shopping,  moving, and more.  We’d love to have you join one of our teams!


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


 To ensure that our families are vetted and provided appropriate wrap-around services, we work exclusively through case worker referrals from local social service agencies and community partners.
