About Re-Source York
About Re-Source York
To advance environmental and social responsibility through the sale of used home goods and building materials while supporting job readiness and resources for our community.
Re-Source York, founded in 2002, is a nonprofit organization operating retail stores to sell donated building supplies and home furnishings to the public, providing jobs for people needing vocational support, and contributing financial support of emergency homeless services for York County families.
Our home improvement store – packed with everything from nuts, bolts and hinges to windows, doors, bathroom fixtures and full kitchen cabinet set-ups – is a first stop for anyone with a DIY or professional renovation project on the horizon.
Our home goods store is the place to shop when searching for home décor. You can find couches and chairs, dressers, desks, and tables, bed frames, dinnerware and glassware, and all sorts of tchotchkes, toys, wall art, books and games.
In addition to bringing significant savings to our greater York area family of customers, Re-Source York is committed to our long-standing partnership with Bell Socialization Services. Re-Source supports Bell in two ways: by making quarterly financial contributions that directly support Bell Family Shelter and by employing participants in Bell’s vocational rehabilitation program who are looking to restart their work lives in a supportive environment.
2019-2020 Annual Report
Life in a non-profit world has its challenges, and 2019-2020 was no exception. But rather than dwell on the things we cannot change, Re-Source York remains focused on how we can make a difference in our community. It’s important to know that it is this community that supports us and keeps us alive. Your donations of building materials and home goods make up 97% of our income—keeping us 100% self-funded. And this money stays in this community— we are local, and our focus is local! Working with our partner Bell Socialization, we help to employ those who face disability, while our quarterly contributions to them go toward keeping families together at their family shelter. Donations turn into dollars which turn into livelihoods for individuals in our community.
How Re-Source York Works
First, we accept donations of materials, furniture, supplies, appliances and more from the community, keeping reusable goods out of our landfills.
Then, our team cleans and sorts everything into two stores for resale – Home Improvement or Home Goods. The donated items are sold at a fraction of the cost of big box stores and makeup 97% of Re-Source York’s income. We help our customers discover a diamond in the rough turning discarded items into treasures.
Each month, a portion of sales from each location is set aside to donate to Bell Socialization Services, specifically designated to Bell Family Shelter, where it empowers York County families experiencing homelessness.
Meet the Team
Corey provides overall executive leadership for the Re-Source York team and is responsible for setting and achieving mission-based goals for the organization. One of Corey’s favorite parts about his role is not only being able to keep items out of landfills and connecting people to the resources they need at affordable prices, but also being surrounded by so many possibilities, whether it be home improvement, redecorating, or an art project. Corey attributes his love of York to the amount of support every community member gives regardless of their own personal needs.
Store Manager, Home Furnishings
Cathy is responsible for all operations at the Carlisle Avenue location. She enjoys helping customers find treasures that make them smile and is a big part of the beautiful displays throughout the store. Cathy loves how friendly people are in York, and that it’s not too big or too small. She is admittedly an “open book” and when not at work likes to go to the beach, hiking, or canoeing.
Store Manager, Home Improvement
April, who has been with Re-Source York for 10 years and first joined the team as a volunteer, oversees the day-to-day operations of the 9th Avenue location. She loves the York community because how family-oriented it is as well as its small, hometown feeling. When not at work, April loves to spend time with her family including her grandchildren.
Assistant Manager, Home Improvement
Kareen has been a fixture at the home improvement store for the last 8 years. Her favorite part about working for Re-Source York is learning new skills and being able to help customers with their projects by suggesting ideas and different materials. Some people may be surprised to learn she is a Star Wars and superheroes superfan and loves to create and build things herself.
Team Member, Home Furnishings
Bryan is a people-person, which makes him a great team member at our Home Furnishings location. He loves to interact with our customers and help them find just the right item to complete their home décor project. He is notably a helpful person and feels the York community gives above and beyond to help others.

Dalton has been with Re-Source York for more than a decade and is known for “getting things done.” From donation sorting to merchandising to customer service, Dalton does it all (in fact, he can’t stand still)! He loves living in York because of the sense of community, and how close it is to other cities.
Team Member, Home Improvement
Eric is a positive, upbeat team member who loves helping customers at the Home Improvement store. He can be found doing inventory, stocking shelves, or helping customers in the showroom. He loves animals, so you may find him with Buddy the Cat at times!
Donation & Delivery Team Member
Gary is one of the smiling faces you may see when you have a donation picked up or have a purchase delivered to your home.
Pallet Jack (PJ)
Security, Home Improvement
PJ is new to the team and keeps the staff (and customers) entertained with his affinity for ribbon, paper balls, and aimlessly running around the 9th Avenue warehouse.
