We’re now in Williston!
ReSOURCE has expanded to 329 Harvest Lane, Williston
329 Harvest Lane, Williston
ReSOURCE had outgrown our 266 Pine Street location. Over the last 23 years we’ve been fortunate to knock down walls to continue to grow, but there were no more walls to take down and we still have more work to do to grow into our full potential.
After two years of searching, we have found a home that will help us achieve our current and future mission of workforce development, poverty relief, and environmental stewardship.
The Williston location is central to our other facilities–Barre, Hyde Park, and Burlington–and allows us to better serve and coordinate with them. It also provides greater geographic coverage, so more low-income people can access our programs and services.
Moreover, this will achieve the ReSOURCE model, all of our services under one roof at every location. Each of our four locations will have household goods, building materials, and training.
339 Pine Street, Burlington
We will keep our reuse and training facilities at 339 Pine Street in Burlington open and expand operations to include a household goods department, additional parking, and building upgrades.
ReSOURCE YouthBuild and the South End Joinery will be located at 339 Pine as well. YouthBuild students can train, learn, and serve where they live in and around Burlington. Staying in Burlington ensures that our students will continue to have easy access to ReSOURCE’s job and life skills training programs and benefit from our growing network of area employer partners.
The South End Joinery gives YouthBuild students training access to its professional quality machines, hand tools, and bench space. The space, in collaboration with the Vermont Woodworking School, also serves as a professional woodshop space and offers a variety of classes and workshops for the community.

Frequently Asked Questions
When did we move to Williston?
The Administrative offices began moving in at the end of February 2018, followed by our reuse store. We then renovated the warehouse, retail, classroom, and administrative spaces to fit our needs. We held our Grand Opening Celebration on April 21st 2018, come and see us in our new space!
What programs are moving to Williston?
The new ~37,000 square foot space at 329 Harvest Lane allows ReSOURCE to secure its own sustainability by housing its reuse store, administrative offices, workforce development programs, and appliance repair and computer departments, under one roof.
Are your training programs moving to Williston?
The training programs Apprentice-Style, Career Path, LEAP, Career Start, and Work Readiness Training will benefit from the new location’s amenities, including larger classrooms for training programs, and increased office and production workspaces. These efficient multi-use spaces will provide more mobility and flexibility to student workstations and increase efficiency of collaboration between programs. ReSOURCE YouthBuild will stay in Burlington at 339 Pine as well as the South End Joinery. Through the increased amenities and investments in both locations ReSOURCE expects its annual training program enrollment to increase from 275 to more than 500 students and trainees within five years.
Why aren't ReSOURCE's headquarters remaining in Burlington?
We spent two years searching for a location that would suit our programmatic needs. We did look into finding a space in Burlington, but were unable to identify a site that would allow us to continue to grow and realize our mission for all Vermonters.
Are there any changes at other ReSOURCE locations?
No, Barre and Hyde Park will continue to serve at their locations in Lamoille and Washington counties.
