Laura's House Resale Stores - Interior

The Laura's House Resale Stores support the Emergency Shelter, Transitional Housing, and Counseling and Resource Center Programs, Legal Advocacy and our prevention and education efforts through the resale of high-quality donated merchandise. Your donations will help to fund the powerful programs offered by Laura's House, in turn helping to end the cycle of violence for many individuals, families, and children affected by domestic violence. We are so thankful for your support through donations and purchases made at our stores.
