Resale Stores' Mission

Our Resale Stores' primary mission is to financially support the programs of Community Action House (CAH).

The proceeds generated by the resale of your donations allow CAH staff to spend more time doing what they do best - feeding the hungry, clothing the needy, preventing foreclosure and evictions, providing transitional housing, and offering educational classes to help build prosperity.
