CRA & CDBG History
Our vision of a vibrant community thrift store was born out of our collecting
“gently used” home furnishings for aged-out foster youth residing here. Further, H.O.M.E.S. owned a dilapidated commercial building that needed significant rehab. Through two years of work with our youth tenants, we knew that jobs and job training are crucial to their success in becoming self-sufficient productive members of our community.
Since November 2011, this project has been made possible through a number of community grants and partnerships. These include building renovation funds (City of Fort Lauderdale: CDBG-R), funding for the Resale Shop Manager & the Job Coaching & Paid Internship Program Director (City of Ft. Lauderdale: CDBG), start-up costs (Salah Foundation), and funding to pay youth salaries during their internships (Jim Moran Foundation & Community Foundation of Broward). H.O.M.E.S. collects quality used home furnishings, accessories, art work, etc. Sales of the these items support the mission of H.O.M.E.S.
