Habitat for Humanity ReStores are non-profit construction markets and fundraising centers that sell new furniture, home furnishings, building materials and equipment to the public at a fraction of the sale price. Habitat for Humanity ReStores is owned and managed by local Habitat for Humanity companies, and the proceeds are used to build strength, stability and self-reliance on the ground and around the world. Each Habitat subsidiary coordinates all aspects of the construction of housing houses in its region. We work with quality contractors and craftsmen for regulated work – such as electrical and sanitary work – and volunteers to help with things such as framing, drying, painting, landscaping and all the other fun things. A common myth about habitat for humanity is that we grant houses for free.
