Home Sweet Home is a 501(c)(3) organization connecting non-profit partners in the St. Louis region with donated furniture and household items. We help clients from partner organizations transition to their new living situations with much-needed furnishings and basics, providing a sense of ownership and a source of stability at this crucial time. The mission of Home Sweet Home is to give families a sense of pride and to improve the quality of their lives by providing basic household furnishings.

Home Sweet Home serves clients who are referred from 18 partner non-profits throughout the St. Louis region. These clients are referred with desperate needs for different reasons and from variety of backgrounds. The services provided by Home Sweet Home are needed most by children, survivors of domestic abuse, veterans, people experiencing homelessness, and ex-offenders looking for a new start.

Our services include pickup of donations by truck, working with case managers at partner agencies to get clients access to furniture, personal and dignified shopping appointments with referred clients, and delivery of new and gently-used furniture and household items to client apartments and homes.
