The Store: Dave & Maggie's Center

COVID-19 Update

We are working closely with the local government and taking guidance from the CDC. We have implemented new protocols including frequent deep cleanings, especially in heavy traffic areas. Social distancing is in effect and we encourage all visitors to be mindful of this while shopping. Our hours have not changed. 

Shop for Good!

Dave and Maggie's Center provides two benefits to the community: as a retail store offering staple and other goods at deeply discounted prices, and as a training center for youth aging out of foster care who need work experience to build their futures.

Dave and Maggie's Center is open Tuesday through Saturday from 10:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.

Address: 1351 Palomares Ave., La Verne, CA 91750.

Phone: (909) 480-8901 x3177

Since 1990 Dave and Maggie's Center, formerly known as The Store at David & Margaret, has served as a resource for low-income families and bargain hunters alike. You never know what amazing deal you will find with new shipments of merchandise arriving frequently. 

Youth aging out of foster care face many obstacles. Your patronage of the store creates new pathways and new opportunities for them as they age out of the foster care system. 

  • The Center offers multiple paid internships for foster youth who are ready to work but lack the skills and experience needed to land a job.  Once these internships are completed youth have the support of an employment specialist to help them find an additional internship if needed, and/or to support them as the transition to permanent employment. 
  • The Center affords young adults aging out of foster care the opportunity to stretch their dollar while purchasing  items they need to establish their new independent lives. 
  • The Center generates revenue that goes directly back to the programs at David & Margaret to support foster youth; renewing hope and inspiring change. 

Youth aging out of foster care are in many ways,  like other young adults,  not quite ready to be out on their own. Unlike other young adults they face numerous other challenges such as: 

  • Nearly half of foster youth have learning disabilities or delays.
  • Only 58% of young people in foster care graduate from high school.
  • Only 3% graduate from college.
  • Foster youth do not have the support and guidance of a family to help them navigate the road to adulthood.
  • Half of youth who have aged out of foster care end up homeless or incarcerated*

Dave and Maggie's Center is a valuable resource for youth as they travel into adulthood.
