Our Resale Store Offers Ways to Help


Shop. Donate. Volunteer.

You can support our unique charity resale boutique by shopping, donating or volunteering.

The store is open to the public seven days a week and features one-of-a-kind finds at good prices. This is the place to shop for all kinds of interesting items–including designer brands and vintage clothing, accessories and collectibles. Stop in often so browse new merchandise, which arrives daily.

You can give your tucked-away treasures and gently-loved favorites a fresh start by donating them to the Collection. Your donations help fund critical programs for victims and survivors at LACASA Center.

You also can support the store’s mission by volunteering to work on the sales floor or behind the scenes. (See below)

Store FAQs

Who can shop?


Where does the money go? 

All store proceeds stay local and directly return to LACASA Center to fund critical services for victims of child abuse, domestic violence and sexual assault from our community.

Do LACASA clients have access to shopping?

Yes, clients receive confidential gift-card vouchers so they may shop with dignity at no charge for the clothing and household items they need for themselves and their children. 

Can I still donate items for the Crisis Shelter?

Yes. Our needs for the Crisis Shelter are vastly different than our needs for the store. For shelter needs, please see our Wish List >> 

Why did LACASA open a store? 

We are diligently working to create financial sustainability for the agency. LACASA Center is an independent nonprofit, meaning we do not receive support or funding from a national parent organization. All proceeds from special events and individual donations stay local and help vulnerable victims and their children right here at home.

It is the belief of our Board of Directors that “safety has no price” and a victim never should be turned away because they cannot afford the protection, support and resources they need. All victim services at LACASA are provided at no charge.

Proceeds generated from the LACASA Collection enhance our ability to empower victims as they recover from trauma and rebuild their lives.
