Welcome to Idaho Youth Ranch Thrift Stores

About Idaho Youth Ranch Thrift Stores

Since 1953, Idaho Youth Ranch has been a beacon of hope for struggling kids and families. Many know our name, but few understand the wide variety of ways we serve young people.  Idaho Youth Ranch is a non-profit 501(c)(3) agency that offers emergency shelter, residential care, youth and family therapy, job readiness training, adoption services,  and more for kids and their families.

Our network of thrift stores help fund our youth programs and services. When you donate your gently-used items or shop our stores, you help provide hope, healing & resilience to Idaho's kids. In addition to funding our programs, your donations provide goods that are affordable and accessible to all members of our community.

Idaho Youth Ranch provides jobs for more than 400 Idahoans in communities across the state who staff our program operations, thrift stores, offices, and distribution centers.
