The FOPTH’s newest venture is “Prime Finds” a high quality thrift store located in Sharon Ct. All items are donated to the store and all proceeds go directly to enhance the budgets of Prime Times programs. The store serves many purposes. It builds awareness of Prime Time House, Inc. and its programs; it provides a place for our members to gain valuable work experience and serves as a venue for public relations and fundraising events.
