Helping Those in Need
New Beginnings operates three thrift stores throughout Orange and Lake Counties to help generate funding for our programs assisting Central Florida’s homeless, hungry and poor. Helping people in need is at the heart of our thrift store program. With access to these thrift stores, we are also able to provide special vouchers for items like clothing and furniture to those with a great need. Outreach coordinators interview those who have expressed a need and write a voucher for items, based on each one’s need. Many in need want to earn everything they get. The voucher program is a hand up, not a hand out. We have found that if people work for the items, they are appreciated more.
To donate to our thrift stores assisting homeless in Clermont, Winter Garden or Kissimmee, please visit any of our three location pages to learn more.
