Community Grant Recipient
Home Again Furniture Bank
Home Again. Two simple words. But establishing a home isn’t always simple. For those in transition from situations of abuse, homelessness, prison or war, for the un- and under-employed or for those with disabilities, the struggle to create a new life is on-going. Part of this struggle involves establishing a home. For those lacking the means or social connections to make that happen, Home Again Furniture Bank can assist.
Home Again Furniture Bank is a nonprofit organization that provides gently-used furniture and household items to individuals and families in need. We work through a referral system of local agencies to help end furniture poverty.
Home Again Furniture Bank will receive a community grant that will be used to fuel their trucks as they make weekly deliveries of furniture to neighbours in our community who for one reason or another are experiencing furniture poverty.

SPCA St. John’s
THE SPCA ST. JOHN’S IS AN ADOPTION-FOCUSED AGENCY HELPING HOMELESS CATS AND DOGS FIND HAPPY BEGINNINGS. WE ALSO WORK, ENCOURAGE, AND ASSIST WITH SPAYING AND NEUTERING ACROSS THE AVALON PENINSULA, HELPING MAKE ANIMAL HOMELESSNESS A THING OF THE PAST.
Since 1888, the SPCA St. John’s has worked to put an end to animal abuse and neglect. From a proud history of standing up for the rights of the working horses in downtown St. John’s, we have become the largest animal shelter in the Province.
We are a leader in preventing pet overpopulation as the first shelter in Newfoundland and Labrador to spay and neuter all our animals prior to adoption. Our low-cost spay and neuter program and our PUP program has assisted members in the community to join us in fighting overpopulation.
SPCA St.John’s will receive a community grant to help their new program helping people who are leaving abusive relationships find temporary foster home for their pets.
