The ReStore accomplishes its mission by accepting donated building materials, appliances, furniture, cabinets, and more and reselling them to the general public. 100% of the profits from the ReStore support Habitat for Humanity of the Chesapeake. In 2009 our combined ReStore locations diverted over 1,000,000 pounds of material from the waste stream.
In today’s economic and fundraising climate, it is extremely important for HFHC to diversify its funding sources and become more self-sustainable. HFHC is challenged with the ongoing need for operating support, in addition to the gap in funding between construction sponsors and actual costs. All of this at a time when land acquisition and construction costs are increasing. This is why the success of the ReStore is so vital to the success of HFHC. Every dollar in profit from the ReStore is one dollar less that HFHC relies on from external sources.
Habitat for Humanity of the Chesapeake: Mission
Habitat for Humanity of the Chesapeake: History
On July 1st, 2009 Chesapeake Habitat and Arundel Habitat merged in order to more efficiently serve a greater number of low-income families. Going forward, the merged organization will be known as Habitat for Humanity of the Chesapeake. This represents an exciting time in our history as we are now one of the largest affiliates on the East Coast. Our combined strengths will allow us to work in a larger geographical area to help build communities and tackle poverty housing.
