What happens with my donation? Does it go into a home built by Habitat?

Material donations are not used in Habitat homes. Instead, our Habitat FC ReStore sell them at low cost to the public. The Habitat FC ReStore generates a valuable revenue stream that enables Habitat for Humanity of Fort Collins to build decent, affordable housing for hard-working, low income families. Your donation not only helps support the construction of Habitat homes, it also helps reduce the costs of home improvement for other homeowners in the Fort Collins community

Yes! Stop by our location at 4001 S Taft Hill road. We are open Tuesday-Saturday from 10:00AM-5:00PM


What do the Habitat ReStores sell?

Habitat ReStores tend to resemble a home improvement store — a very unique home improvement store. At the majority of Habitat ReStores you’ll find items that fit into the following categories: building materials, appliances, furniture, home décor and so much more!  The items you’ll find will range from brand new to gently used, and there will likely be a wide range of brands and styles. Of course, that’s not all you’ll find. Because the inventory of each Habitat ReStore depends on donations, you never know exactly what you’ll find. We recommend heading to your local Habitat ReStore today to see what's in stock! (Of course, you may want to go back next week, too, to see what new items have arrived).


Does the ReStore offer building deconstruction services?

We unfortunately do not have the resources to deconstruct or dismantle any items to be donated. We recommend contacting the Deconstruction and Reuse Network for this service.
