Mission Statement

We strive to provide a decent, safe and affordable place to live for every man, woman and child in the San Fernando Santa Clarita and Antelope Valleys. We further promote education and self-sufficiency by connecting our recipients to social services.

Description

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in use of landfills by construction industry and manufacturing for production over-runs, excess purchasing, and outdated, odd-lot, or discontinued materials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
