As many of you know, over the last year we have been working very hard on renovating our ReStore. Take a look at some of the exciting things we have going on right now!
Over the last 30 years we have been blessed to call Sumter our home. Through serving families in need of decent, affordable housing, connecting with many wonderful folks in Sumter, and inspiring change by bringing new life to items at the ReStore, we are proud to have such a great community to be a part of.

"My motto is 'Never Give Up.' I used to tell myself I couldn't a lot, but you always can if you keep the right frame of mind."
A Habitat for Humanity house starts with the families who partner with us to build or improve a place they can call home. Families like Shenta and her four young sons, Kayden, Kameron, Keith and Kingston.
The family currently lives in a small two bedroom apartment and, with four growing boys, its bursting at the seams. She looks forward to the day when her children can have their own space to grown in.
Shenta works hard to provide for her boys and has found that her priorities must be her children first always. Through all of her struggles, she always stays resilient because she knows that her children need a strong role model to look up to. She is lucky to have a great support system in her family.
“No matter what, I know I will be okay.” she says. “With God there, I will never fall.”
