The ReStore is a building surplus supply store that creates a self-sustaining funding source for the purchase of land and the building of affordable, decent, safe and stable housing for low income working citizens in our community. It produces:
Reduction in solid waste through recycling
Significant reduction in use of landfills by construction industry and manufacturing for production over-runs, excess purchasing, and outdated, odd-lot, or discontinued materials
Improvement in urban blight through providing low-cost opportunities for low-income homeowners to do home repairs and through the added ability for Habitat for Humanity to build affordable, decent housing in our region.
Neighborhood stability through increased homeownership opportunity
Economic development for smaller contractors who purchase low-cost materials and for those who fill the jobs this store will create
In current economic struggle for larger contractors, there will be significant cost savings related to reducing landfill disposal costs for builders and other consumers
Job training and mentoring opportunities and service learning opportunities for at-risk youth and returning veterans to learn about the retail business and obtain meaningful first-time employment as well as to learn furniture refinishing and general construction
Gang prevention through youth-based training programs in concert with ongoing youth-build opportunities
