Habitat ReStore

You can find great bargains at Habitat ReStores, but did you also know ReStores help us build more homes AND divert waste from landfills. Donate your used building goods or go shop. Either way, you’re making a difference. 

Did you know that your ReStore donations and purchases does much more than help families escape from unsafe, unhealthy living conditions?

You’re helping families to break the cycle of poverty and build long-term financial security. Habitat’s affordable, no-profit house payments free up money for food, child care, medicine and other necessities. And research has shown that decent housing improves health, increases children’s educational achievement and strengthens community ties.
