Hope ReStored: furnishing a future, helping people find home again.
At Habitat for Humanity, we believe everyone deserves a decent place to call home. Simple home furnishings—a sturdy chair to sit, a comfortable bed to rest, a welcoming table for meals—these items are easy to overlook, but are vital to a sense of comfort, pride, and dignity. Through the Hope ReStored program—a special partnership between the City of Canton, the City of Massillon, local organizations, and Habitat ReStore in Canton—low to moderate income families can receive free vouchers to get the items they need.
How does Hope ReStored work?
1. People seek assistance.
Low income families seek furniture assistance from one of our Hope ReStored partners.
2. You donate your stuff.
You donate the home goods and building materials you no longer need to ReStore.
3. Needs met with dignity.
Those with need are given free vouchers to shop for items at ReStore in Canton.
4. ReStore build homes.
ReStore proceeds help Habitat for Humanity build homes with local families in need.
