The Thrift Store

​​Our Thrift Store provides the Mission with a needed financial resource, and many of the donated items are also used in our day to day operations, including household goods and clothing for our residents. The store also is a big part of our occupational training program through which the residents repair appliances, refinish furniture, and service equipment that is being sold in the store. The Thrift Store also serves as an outreach to our community, providing items to the needy and offering spiritual help.
