Homes built from ReStore proceeds this year
What is the ReStore?
- The Houston Habitat ReStore is a non-profit home improvement store and donation center that offers new and like-new building materials including furniture, paint, cabinetry and more at deeply discounted prices. Proceeds from the ReStore help Houston Habitat build more homes for hard-working, low-income families.
What are our hours of operation?
Monday – Saturday: 9am – 5pm
What can I donate?
- The ReStore accepts new and gently used building materials of all types from builders and businesses as well as from individuals. However, as a re-sale store, acceptance guidelines are strict. Due to limited resources and storage capacity, at times the ReStore may be unable to receive overstocked items. All donations to the Houston Habitat ReStore are tax deductible to the extent allowable by law. Please email or call our store to make a donation or with specific questions: (713) 643-1100.
