The Hope House is taking on a new project.
It's opening a thrift store filled with affordable clothing and household items for the community.
Clothes will cost no more than two dollars.
Some household items will cost a little more.
It's also a place for people in the "Jobs for Life" program to work for three to six months while they actively seek permanent employment elsewhere.
"It's really hard for an individual to ask for a handout and to ask for something that they desperately want to be able to do themselves," said Hope House's executive director, Bryan Lewis. "So basically, this is a way to connect with a part of the neighborhood that maybe never comes to our facility and so now they have an ability to do that."
The grand opening for the store is this Saturday from 11-2 p.m. on West 10th Avenue in Bowling Green.
