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.
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.
Spotlight: Journey to New Life
Flourish Furniture Bank and Journey to New Life are two organizations that understand the deep importance of home and belonging. Through this partnership, Flourish has been able to help Ricky, Kevin, and Lamar on their road to stability as they face a future that may have seemed impossible just a short time ago.

Farewell to executive director, Rich Shockey
It is with both great sadness and appreciation that we announce the planned departure of Rich Shockey as the Executive Director of Flourish Furniture Bank at the end of April 2023. During Rich’s two-year tenure, he has been a remarkable visionary leader, providing growth for the organization as well as strengthening the deeply mission-driven culture. Rich will be embarking on a new path that takes him to Denver, Colorado to be the CEO of a social impact organization there. The Flourish Furniture Bank family wishes Rich success and joy in all of his future endeavors.
