Founded in Burlington in 1991, ReSource’s mission is to meet community and individual needs through (1) education and job skills training, (2) environmental stewardship, and (3) economic opportunities.  The nonprofit now operates four retail shops, which re-sell repaired household items and building materials that otherwise would have gone to the dump, and donates items to low-income individuals.  Through this work, it trains and provides job opportunities to disadvantaged youth and individuals who are homeless or unemployed, receive public assistance, or struggle with barriers to employment.  As of 2015, the nonprofit has trained over 750 individuals, donated goods to over 10,000 low-income people, and diverted more than 10,000 tons of materials from the landfill.
