NLB Thrift is an industry of No Longer Bound, a 12-month, residential regeneration program for men with drug and alcohol addiction. For 25 years, No Longer Bound has saved over 1,200 men from their deadly addictions, returning regenerated men to their families and society for the chance to lead productive, meaningful lives.
The four industries* of No Longer Bound provide revenue for the ministry and allow us to keep intake fees low for residents. The industries also provide valuable vocational training for residents and a productive way for the men in our care to spend their days (in addition to classroom instruction and group counseling received at NLB).
Men working on the NLB Thrift industry team gain retail and customer service experience, learn scheduling and logistics detail plus other valuable skills. When you visit a NLB Thrift Store, you’ll see NLB residents and interns working in all areas of the retail operation. We hope you’ll take a moment to offer a word of encouragement and get to know some of the outstanding men in our program.
No Longer Bound is a faith based, independent 501(c)(3) non-profit charity. All donations are tax deductible as allowed by law.
Born as an only child to a loving family, Zach King’s journey from Boy Scout to addict began when he was in middle school in Woodstock, Georgia. It all started with a friend who had a mother with terminal cancer. The high powered opiates in abundant supply at his friends house to control the mother’s pain were easily accessible to the boys. Together they tried OxyContin and addiction soon followed.
