We provide upholstered furniture, wood furniture, beds, dining tables/chairs, linens, basic cookware/bakeware, dishware/silverware/glassware and other miscellaneous items as they are available.
Our clients can shop for their new furniture and household belongings with dignity. They have the ability to personally select their items, making the transition to their new residence feel like home. Your client will be greeted by volunteers and assigned a personal shopper to assist in the entire process.
Flourish Furnishings is one critical stop on a client’s path to healthy, stable and safe living. We could not serve our mission of “furnishing homes with hope” without your partnership in identifying the clients in need. You are our greatest asset as we locate, connect and serve the basic home essential needs of thousands in the KC metro area.
Nonprofit organizations, faith-based communities and county human services programs are vital to our ability to serve those in need. We only accept referrals from approved agency case workers. Our goal is to ensure that our clients are receiving full wrap-around services as they move toward becoming self-sustaining. We are only one piece to that puzzle. We furnish hope by offering a hand up & not a hand out.
We no longer have a “once in a lifetime served” stipulation. We recognize that there may be extenuating circumstances that may require a client to be seen more than once. We are leaving that vetting process completely up to your case workers.
We have made improvements in our process for inviting, accepting, and training our agency partners/case workers. Each year we send out an annual application to the directors of both existing and potential partner agencies. We want to serve more, and serve them better. All referral/partner information will be accessible on our website throughout the year.
We will accept applications on an ongoing basis and will incorporate those partners based on capacity of the ministry. We’ve added a partner agency liaison. Having a dedicated team member in this role ensures that your agency is receiving the education and support your case workers need for our partnership to be successful for your clients.
We’ll be holding monthly 1-hour orientations for all referring case workers. This is an opportunity for each of you to visit our location and be fully aware of the expectations and process. Your case worker will be equipped with a client checklist, a list of what your client can expect to receive, as well as additional information that ensures your client has clear expectations and understanding of our process.
Finally, to streamline the process and eliminate barriers we now allow referring agency case workers to self-schedule their client appointments. Your case workers will have an “account” which enables them to have access to all their scheduled appointments for reference, cancellation, or rescheduling.
