How Your Donations Help

Clothing and other items necessary to support Families in Transition program participants are put aside to fulfill those needs directly. If our direct needs for programs are met, items are sold in the store.

100% of store proceeds go directly towards supporting and funding our mission to prevent and break the cycle of homelessness, helping to support housing programs and services for people around New Hampshire.

Our housing program participants also receive store vouchers for clothing and goods they need. On average, we supply more than $1,000 worth of merchandise each month to families and individuals in our programs.

Retail that feels like home

Our local store offers a welcoming atmosphere and a wide selection of everything from gently used housewares and clothing for the whole family to books, movies, small electronics, and seasonal decorations. With off-street parking and a convenient location near I-293, downtown Manchester, and South Willow Street, we are the destination for selection and savings for everyone in the family and a highly sought-after location for avid thrifters!
