Community Threads is an upscale thrift store selling quality goods at low prices with the mission of supporting Home of the Sparrow. Store profits go to help homeless women and children in Home of the Sparrow's Programs. You will also be part of an important recycling and conservation effort by keeping used goods out of our overflowing landfills.

The store has many different roles for volunteers. We will help you find the role that fits you the best and provide training. Volunteers receive ongoing support when they serve. Many different service days and times are available to fit every schedule.
