re: Purpose is a unique boutique and storefront located at Operation Come Home. The boutique products have an emphasis on recycled materials and young artisan creations. The boutique sells products from social enterprises, artisans and youth products that are made by at risk and homeless youth at OCH. The boutique stocks products that are unique, high quality and many are re: purposed. Products that are sold in the boutique provide jobs for at risk and homeless youth and give local enterprises and artisans an opportunity to sell their products. A portion of the product sales are re-directed back into re: Purpose to sustain the enterprise.

BeadWorks is a social enterprise that offers street-involved and at-risk youth a safe and creative space to design, craft, and sell one of a kind jewellery. The jewellery is sold at our re: Purpose storefront at 150 Gloucester St.
BeadWorks uses jewellery and art as a means to offer youth a supportive space, a creative outlet, a healthy meal, social opportunities, business skills and is often used as a stepping stone for youth to access other supports and services.
The majority of BeadWorks supplies are donated, deconstructed and reused in our bead bank, where our youth transform them into new one of a kind creations. BeadWorks is always grateful to receive donations of beads and charms. If you have any supplies or old jewellery that you would like to donate to BeadWorks, please drop it off at Operation Come Home.
