LifePath Thrift Stores

LifePath’s three Thrift Stores are a vital link between the community and struggling neighbors.

The stores (locations below) are stocked with merchandise donations from supporters. Those items are then offered free to the public, or to shoppers at bargain prices. All proceeds help provide transformative resources to those who seek our services.

Mission Statement

Mission is to love, honor and serve our struggling neighbors at their point of need and holistically equip them to flourish in the community.


Transforming lives, transforming community.


“From the very beginning, the importance of a mission for York was on the hearts of all of us.”

So said Stuart Shelley, one of the founders of York Rescue Mission (the precursor to LifePath Christian Ministries). In 1961, Shelley and others started planning the Mission’s work and vision. We opened in 1962 with only two buildings — one for sleeping quarters for homeless neighbors, a small restaurant to serve meals, and a chapel, and the other for the Mission’s superintendent and family.

Herman R. Smith, another founder and our first Board President, said, “Our first priority has always been the salvation of men’s souls. Their spiritual needs come first, then their physical needs. We help them, house them, and feed them. We help them find God, and get over the problems they may have so they can reenter the mainstream of life.”

Within the first two years, the Mission became overcrowded and had to expand … and we’ve been expanding ever since — not just in our facilities, but also in the way we help our neighbors in need, now with more services than ever before.
