Project HOMEbooks

Social Enterprise

Questions? Contact Shayla Cossie at [email protected] or 215-232-7272.

Our newest social enterprise initiative, Project HOMEbooks, has been an enormous success, due mainly to the efforts of our generous donors. 

Can you help us continue to build upon that success by donating your gently used books?

How Do I Donate?

Bring your gently used books to HOMEspun Boutique at

1523 Fairmount Avenue
at any time Monday through Saturday from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. 

Want to increase your donation? We have found that donor-run book drives are a great way to add more books to our stock. Every book drive helps us to grow our online used book business; and that helps us to employ people who have experienced homelessness as they recover. 

Creating opportunities for employment is a key element of ending homelessness. And to that end our book reselling enterprise has been a boon with our residents sorting and mailing your donated books to customers all over the world.

What Should I Donate?

Our customers' favorite books concern art and design, religion, and newer academic or technical texts on topics like engineering or philosophy. But we accept and can use nearly any book in good condition. We cannot accept encyclopedias, or periodicals, however.

Can I Find You Online?

You can shop our selection on Amazon, Abebooks, or Alibris.
