Every dollar spent and every item donated at our ENCORE stores supports our work, caring for those who are homeless.


Verse of the Month

Are not five sparrows sold for two pennies? Yet not one of them is forgotten by God. Indeed, the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Don't be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows.

-Luke 12:6-7
