Part of Habitat’s ministry is having ReStore. ReStore is an outlet that collects new and slightly used building materials along with furniture, appliances, and other household items. In turn, these items are sold to the public at a drastically reduced price, thereby creating a revenue stream used to build more homes for qualified Geauga County residents in need of affordable housing.
