Who We Are


What Is ReStore?

The Lima Area ReStore sells overstocked, discontinued, new and used building materials donated by manufacturers, store, contractors and individuals. These donated items are sold to the public at greatly reduced prices.

The Lima Area ReStore generates funds to help support our efforts to build simple, decent, affordable homes in the Lima-Allen County area.

90% of the donations stay right here in Allen County and contribute to “changing the world” in places like Africa and Guatemala.

Our Mission

Habitat for Humanity – Lima Area, Inc. seeks to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ by working in partnership with people who blend their time, talent and gifts to build simple, decent housing with families in need so all are encouraged to be what God intended.
