Our Organization Believes in Creativity and Innovation



    In 1978, the Mission opened a Thrift Store in the center of Waterbury offering clothing, furniture and household articles donated by the local community. Providing relief to families and individuals living with the challenges of poverty, the Thrift Store offered access to basic items and furnishings not accessible through conventional outlets.

    Today, our Thrift Store operates six days per week and has become an essential service for those living in poverty in our community. Based on need, it provides at low cost or no cost clothing, household items, furnishings, and other goods to individuals and families experiencing poverty living throughout the area. Staff are available to consider each customer's situation and provide assistance in making a purchase.
