Housing Works accepts a variety of reusable items for its network of second-hand stores; all of the profits go to support the Housing Works mission. The Housing Works Thrift Shops, Bookstore Café, and Buy the Bag Shop generate funds that directly provide their clients with housing, healthcare, job training, legal services, and more.
