Why the WEARhouse Thrift Store?

The WEARhouse thrift store is a critical part of the Hope House’s mission to serve the homeless in our community. The store provides an opportunity for community members and businesses to support us without having to write a check. We all have items in our homes, organizations and businesses that we look to donate to others who could use them. Our thrift store provides that giving outlet to everyone.

The donations of clothes, shoes, linens, household hardgoods, furniture and other items are sold in our store with all of the money raised going to support our homeless program. Our thrift store is an important funding resource for our program and is presently covering 55% of our homeless program operating costs.
