The Restore Cycle

See How It Works

The Habitat ReStore plays an important role in the effort to eliminate substandard housing. Your donations are sold and the proceeds offset most of Habitat MidOhio’s administrative costs-so cash contributions go directly toward building homes for deserving families.
