Habitat ReStore sells donated building material to support New Orleans Area Habitat for Humanity, a non-profit organization dedicated to the elimination of substandard housing. The ReStore contributes to New Orleans Area Habitat for Humanity's mission of eliminating substandard housing in two ways: by providing the greater New Orleans area with an affordable source of home repair and maintenance supplies; and by providing a self-sustaining source of funding for the affiliate. The ReStore helps Habitat build homes! Additionally, the ReStore promotes good stewardship of resources by keeping materials from the landfill. The ReStore adds an option for shoppers looking for a bargain, searching for specialty items, or who may be unable to purchase maintenance and improvement items at full price.
