How it works: Donations from individuals, families, and companies are used at the shelter to meet the needs of the residents. After the needs of residents are met, donated items are sold at the thrift store, and all proceeds benefit Open House Ministries. It costs $15 for one person to stay one night at the shelter, so every $15 can help pay for someone to stay at the shelter.

Donating is fast, convenient, and comes with a high level of satisfaction. We love overruns, last season’s styles, whole house renovations, and estates. Donating is a great way to strengthen the families in our community while passing on your excess. Tax receipts are available.

Can I donate this? A great rule of thumb is to ask, “Would I give this to my best friend?”This quickly rules out broken or soiled items, as well as those subject to a recall, ban, or which fail to meet current safety standards. Thank you for your generous support of Open House Ministries. Our store is ran solely on donations. Thank you for making this venture possible!

Common Grounds Cafe is now opened and inside the store. We are excited to be able to offer a place where you can enjoy your coffee while you shop! Common Grounds Cafe uses the great tasting coffee of BJ’s.  We serve great tasting espressos, italian sodas and more!

Hours are Tuesday thru Saturdays 10 am – 4:00pm.
