Who We Are

PennyWise is now ThriftWise!

Helping Survivors

Family shopping

ThriftWise Resale Stores

When you donate or shop at one of our ThriftWise Stores, you are providing items for survivors in need AND providing much needed funds to make it possible to bring vital services to survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault. We can change lives together!

YOU play an integral part in helping us bring Healing & Hope to survivors of domestic violence & sexual assault.

What happens when you donate to one of our ThriftWise locations in Greater Houston?
When you donate to ThriftWise, you directly support our work in three ways:

  • Providing families with clothing, furniture and household goods to help them start new, violence-free lives.
  • You help us provide a quality, reasonably priced product to our community.
  • When we sell the rest of these donated goods in our stores, that money is directed back into funding our life-saving programs.

What happens when someone donates something unusable or damaged beyond repair?
RECYCLING, that’s what happens! Clothing that we are unable to use are recycled with the proceeds then directed back into funding our life-saving programs.

At ThriftWise, YOU MATTER and every little bit helps. So, keep donating, shopping and changing lives!
