Our Store

Store sales help fund Habitat’s mission of building simple, decent housing for families in our community.
When you donate or shop at our Store, you help build homes, communities, and hope. Your donated items are sold to the public at discounted prices, and the funds they generate help support our mission. Donate today to help build safe, affordable homes in Central Iowa!

Through volunteer labor and donations of money and materials, Habitat builds and rehabilitates houses alongside our homebuyer families. Habitat does not give away homes. In addition to a down payment and monthly mortgage payments, homeowners invest hundreds of hours of their own labor (sweat equity) into building their Habitat house and other Habitat houses.

  • Habitat houses are sold to partner families at no profit and financed with affordable loans.
  • The homeowners’ monthly mortgage payments are used to build more Habitat houses.
  • Habitat homeowner property taxes contribute to the local economy.
  • The Habitat Store sells new and gently used furniture and home improvement materials to the public at discount prices.
  • All proceeds benefit Habitat of Humanity of Central Iowa’s mission of building homes, communities, and hope.

Our Habitat Store takes in donations of new and gently used Furniture, Antiques, Home Decor, Appliances, Cabinets, Hardware, Building Supplies, Power and Hand Tools, Electrical, Plumbing, Sinks, Windows & Doors, etc.

Your generous donations keep reusable materials out of the landfill while helping build more homes for families in need.
