New Horizons Thrift Store

Creating a dynamic retail environment that fosters a spirit of community, provides for capacity building opportunities for volunteers, and improves employment related skills . . .


New Horizons Thrift Store

New Horizons Thrift Store is a unique place; it’s a community space first and a retail store second. We are working towards a sustainable future by diverting useful items from landfills. The store itself is operated by volunteers who are learning new skills to enhance their employment opportunities, and it’s a place for people to connect and experience community.

New Horizons sells used clothing, toys, housewares, linens, sports goods, books and much more.  The funds raised through the sales are utilized to not only operate New Horizons but also to support the various programs of Welcome Inn.

COVID Update: Due to the rise in COVID cases, we have once again decided to temporarily close New Horizons, effective November 14, 2020. Stay tuned for more details on when we will reopen. No donations will be accepted at this time.

Funding for the mentorship that we provide our volunteers is provided by Women4Change through the Hamilton Community Foundation.
