HOLIDAY CLOSURE:  We will be closed 11/24 & 11/25 in observation of Thanksgiving.  We will be open 9am-12pm on Saturday, 11/26.

YOU can help the Sharehouse turn housing into homes!

It costs us approximately $75 for each pick-up we do in the community. To offset our costs, we do require a monetary donation.
