Recovery Voucher Program

The Recovery Voucher Program is a direct service program by United Way of Wayne County geared toward assisting individuals and families in their recovery/transition from natural disasters or personal crises like domestic violence, eviction, and re-entry by providing a voucher to use in the following thrift stores: Habitat ReStore, InJoy, and Salvation Army Family Store. United Way of Wayne County will issue vouchers to eligible recipients for use at participating thrift stores in Wayne County, where quality clothing, furniture, home supplies, and building materials may be purchased at affordable prices.
