Chicago (October 5, 2017) – Pariveda Solutions and Chicagoland Habitat for Humanity are pleased to announce the launch of a new web and mobile application for Habitat ReStore locations across the region. Chicagoland Habitat is a support organization for the eight Habitat for Humanity affiliates in the Chicago area, working with them to support their impact throughout Chicagoland. 

Habitat ReStores are nonprofit home improvement stores and donation centers that sell new and gently used furniture, appliances, home accessories, building materials and more to the public at a fraction of the retail price. ReStores are independently owned and operated by local Habitat for Humanity affiliates. Proceeds are used to help build strength, stability, self-reliance and shelter in local communities.

Pariveda was able to leverage their 11-week non-profit internship to partner with Habitat for Humanity to deliver an innovative mobile and web application that helps increase the accessibility of affiliate ReStores and the items they currently have in stock. This application will give the community real time access to some of the items that are in the store so they can furnish their new or existing homes. This application will also provide new levels of visibility in the community to serve more families, provide donors a place to give, and show volunteers new opportunities to serve in the stores.

“The myReStore app allows Habitat ReStores to provide their customers access to shop, donate and volunteer, anywhere, at any time throughout the region,” said Brian M. Worrall, Chief Marketing and Technology Officer for Chicagoland Habitat. “We are grateful to Pariveda as they listened to our needs and developed an application that will impact the ability of ReStores and affiliates to better serve the community.”

“Investing in our community with Chicagoland Habitat for Humanity this summer was a great experience – not only for our intern team and me but for the Chicago office as a whole.” said Matt Decelle, Chicago Intern Manager. “We are excited for the positive impact this application will make in the Chicagoland area and beyond.”

The myReStore app is available on iTunes and Google Play. For more information or to inquire about using the app in your area, contact myrestoreapp@chfh.org.
