Located in Downtown Albany, The Vandy offers low prices on men's and women's clothing, accessories and home décor. Shop your favorite brands at The Vandy Thrift Shoppe. Proceeds directly support Vanderheyden's mission to empower youth, adults and families to build brighter futures.
The Vandy Thrift Shoppe is a training location for future retail positions for those we serve. Vanderheyden students, team members, clients, and other agency members will work collaboratively to operate and manage the shoppe. This project-based approach focuses on the operation of the storefront to teach valuable transferable and work-specific skills that can be applied to a variety of industries later in personal working experiences.
Our explicit goal surrounding work-based learning and Career Center programs is to assure success in the workplace for our individuals regardless of their trauma histories and associated challenges.
