About the Stores

Mel Trotter Ministries Thrift Stores exist to expand public awareness of MTM and financially support the programs at Mel Trotter Ministries.

Our Mission

Our Vision

Through the power of Christ, bring an end to homelessness in greater Grand Rapids.

COVID-19 Updates

ALL locations are open. 

We have lifted the mask mandate at our stores and we are doing regular house pick ups. At the request of our donors, we will have staff wear a mask when doing the pick up. We continue to do high touch point cleaning and use the sneeze guards in the stores.
