Repurpose for a Purpose


Our Thrift Boutique supports Home Start’s residential shelter program — a safe place that offers homeless young mothers renewed hope and an opportunity to build confidence, access programs and strengthen their families.

The store also provides a supportive setting for these young mothers to develop job skills and gain work experience as they move toward greater independence. Home Start provides a hand up, not just a handout.


Visit the Home Start Thrift Boutique at 3611 Adams Ave., San Diego CA 92116

Store Hours: Tuesday through Saturday 11:00 am to 6:00 pm






MegJacobsThe Home Start Thrift Boutique is a dream realized through a generous legacy gift from Margaret “Meg” Jacobs, who died of complications from breast cancer in 2012. Meg was a social worker who worked at Home Start early in her career. Through this gift, Home Start has touched the lives of so many more children and families in need of our support.
