  • Avesta partners and donates to Habitat Home Center

    Avesta partners and donates to Habitat Home Center

    Habitat for Humanity of San Antonio wholly owns three home improvement thrift stores called the “Habitat Home Center”.  Each Home Center accepts donations of both new and gently used home/office furnishings, décor, building material and more to be resold to the public below normal retail.The proceeds raised support Habitat in covering its overhead expenses so that 100% of every donor dollar goes directly into its home building program. 

    Since February 2015, the apartment investment and management firm, Avesta, has donated over 120 appliances, including stoves, refrigerators and ceiling fans, thus generating approximately $1,600.00 in Home Center profits.

    Avesta is a rapidly-growing company based in Tampa, Florida. Since its founding in 2010, Avesta has acquired nearly 8,500 apartments throughout the Southeast, and has assembled a 200-employee team drawn from the best companies worldwide. Avesta’s business model is to apply industry best practices to properties that historically under-served, middle-income renters call "home." Avesta’s mission is to give people a home where they can live abundantly and create more community in the world. By striving to be the world’s most resident-focused company, Avesta creates lasting value and serves each of its stakeholders: employees, capital partners, vendors, communities, and most importantly, its residents.


    With Avesta’s new partnership, Habitat can continue building more homes for low-income families in San Antonio.

    Thank you, Avesta, for your generous and ongoing partnership!

    If you’d like to partner and donate please contact the Habitat Home Center Marketing Associate at 210.223.5203 x159 or homecenter@HabitatSA.org.

  • Habitat Home Center in partnership with Alamo Zippy Shell and McCoy's Building Supply

    Zippy Shell; founded in 2007, was one of Australia’s first mobile storage businesses and launched in the United States in 2010 as Zippy Shell USA, LLC. The mission is clear: provide convenient, affordable mobile storage and stress free moving. The unique shell and container model saves you time, money and effort by eliminating the need for rental trucks and double handling. With no permits required, the street legal shells can be dropped off and picked up on your schedule. This convenient service at a cost effective price is what attracts consumers.
    Alamo Zippy Shell, under the ownership of Charles Bamford, opened in November 2014 to service the San Antonio market. Mr. Bamford’s prior experience in the aerospace industry and helping customers implement best practices is applied to provide Zippy Shell’s storage and moving customers with exceptional service and value.
    Beginning March 2015, Alamo Zippy Shell will be partnering with Habitat Home Center to provide a convenient process for the collection of donations, using the Zippy Shell trailer and container, at various locations around the city from the community.
    Donations of excess home building material, gently used furniture and décor will be accepted once a month around the city of San Antonio.
    McCoy’s Building Supply at 1025 Kitty Hawk in Universal City will be the first of many locations you can drop off your donations.
    McCoy’s operates 86 Building Supply locations and two McCoy’s Millworks facilities in five states serving both Builders and Consumers. For more than 85 years McCoy’s has been dedicated to dealing fairly and respectfully with all whose lives they touch.
    With McCoy’s support in believing communities can be strengthened, this worthwhile partnership with Zippy Shell and Habitat Home Center will certainly assist with diverting San Antonio’s building stock from going into the landfill.
    Without the support of both Zippy Shell and McCoy’s, the Habitat Home Center would not be able to continue its success of accepting gently used home building material, furniture and more and reselling it to the community below cost.
    Our three San Antonio home improvement thrift stores’ proceeds benefit Habitat for Humanity of San Antonio’s home building program.
    Habitat for Humanity of San Antonio works with low-income families who would not otherwise be able to afford a home.
    With the funds raised through the Habitat Home Centers, Habitat for Humanity of San Antonio can continue its mission of building simple, decent and affordable homes without interest or profit to the San Antonio community.

  • Habitat Home Centers' New Saturday Hours!

    Habitat Home Center


    For the past 20 years, the Habitat Home Centers operated on Saturdays from 8am-4pm.


    This past November and December our store on Probandt St. played with our hours of operation to see what time best fit our customers' needs.  We were faced with the overwhelming fact that customers could be better served when the store was open an hour later.  Seeing how we could be better stewards to our community, our staff agreed that staying open an hour later would benefit all parties involved.  With everyone's vote and approval, we are happy to announce that each of our 3 Habitat Home Centers will now be open on Saturdays from 9am-5pm.

    We hope that this change in hours certainly reaches more customers so we can continue serving you as best we can!


    Please visit us regularly; we have quick turn-a rounds on donated home/office decor, furnishings, cabinets and more.

    Each store is open Monday-Friday from 8am-6pm and Saturdays NOW from 9am-5pm.
