We are a Christian-based organization that helps single moms and homeless families by providing temporary shelter, helping them set and reach goals, while working on a budget and a goal plan; teaching them to become independent while helping them to focus by taking away burdens that hold them back.
Goodwill Industries of the Chesapeake, Inc. has spent more than 96 years collecting reusable items for resale in our retail stores and using the return to invest in hardworking individuals seeking stability and financial independence. Shopping with Goodwill means investing in the future of countless others, helping to better prepare those individuals for the workforce and instilling a sense of dignity and purpose.
ReStores are outlets that accept donated goods for resale. While every ReStore is a little different, most focus on home improvement goods—furniture, home accessories, building materials and appliances. These donated goods are sold to the general public at a fraction of the retail price to help local affiliates fund their self-help housing program. This is not your regular thrift store!

his quaint resale shop collects donations from area residents and offers them to the public at extremely discounted prices. Even after hours, the Treasure Cove also is available to assist anyone in need of clothing, shoes, household items or furniture—entirely free of charge.
Save for its manager, the Treasure Cove is staffed by community volunteers and we partner with many other local non-profit organizations and the Department of Social Services to provide these services to victims of fire, flood, eviction, job loss or any other special circumstance that leaves people in need.
The Treasure Cove is always in need of clean, in-season clothing, gently used furniture and usable household goods. We also welcome volunteers!
Every penny we earn from donations goes toward underwriting the programs and operating expenses of the St. Michaels Community Center, and we share any excess donations with our partner organizations like Goodwill, the Salvation Army and The Neighborhood Service Center.
