What is the NCHFH ReStore?

NCHFH’s ReStore is a retail store that sells new and gently used appliances, building materials, furniture, home decor household goods and more!  The ReStore accepts donations from the public and in return sells these donations for 40% to 90% off of full retail prices. All proceeds generated from ReStore sales offset NCHFH’s administrative and construction expenses so that the organization can further its mission of helping individuals and families in need throughout Coweta County, Georgia.

Where is the NCHFH ReStore located and what are its hours of operation?

The NCHFH ReStore has relocated to 216 Bullsboro Drive, Ste. B-1 in Newnan, next to Dollar General and Big Lots. The former location of 150 Pine Road is no longer in operation. The new ReStore is slated to open in early December 2017. Once the new ReStore opens, shopping hours will be Tuesday through Saturday from 9 am to 6 pm. Donations can be dropped off at this location Tuesday through Saturday from 9 am to 5:30 pm.

Does NCHFH build houses for minorities?

NCHFH doesn’t build houses for anyone. We build houses for people in need, without regard to race. The U.S. Fair Housing Act of 1968 prohibits discrimination for the sale of a home based on race, color, sex, religion, handicap, familial status or national origin. The covenant that all local Habitat affiliates sign with Habitat for Humanity International also specifies that Habitat family partners are selected “according to criteria that do not discriminate on the basis of race, creed or ethnic background.”
