Second Hand Solutions is not your typical thrift store. We believe by providing a positive learning environment where Open House residents can gain on-the-job training, work experience and self-confidence, we can help end the cycle of homelessness. Our store is staffed with Open House residents and volunteers. If you would like to volunteer and work alongside our residents, please call Open House Ministries at 360-737-0300 and talk to our volunteer coordinator, Claudia Merritt.
When you donate or shop with us, you are helping homeless families in our community. All donations received help support our residents by either going directly to a family or sold in our thrift store, and 100 percent of proceeds benefit homeless families. Every item sold at our store helps pay for someone to stay in our shelter.
If you are looking for a place to donate, please consider Open House Ministries. We accept donations 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday (Wednesdays 11 a.m. – 5p.m.). Please call our store at 360-735-5943 if you have any questions about items you would like to donate or acquire.
