Finding Purpose In Your Life

 Prime Time House gave me a purpose in life.  It gave me a reason for functioning, a reason for getting up every day.  Before Prime Time House, I would stay at home, sleep, and do nothing, but now I have a purpose. I have a reason to get out of bed every day.  I have friends.  I have people who I need.

PRIME FINDS Home for the Holidays:

A true partnership of time, talent, and treasure! We have begun to organize PRIME FINDS Home for the Holidays 2023. Collectively investing hundreds of hours to coordinate, this year’s committee is comprised of the following:

Our Generous Sponsors:


The Shrine of Lourdes in Litchfield

A Ministry of the Montfort Missionaries

Join Us In Sponsoring:

We couldn’t be more excited to announce that Torrington Savings Bank is joining us as “Presenting Sponsor” this year.  Every year we attract newcomers to the store who are intrigued by the merchandise sold at very reasonable prices. This is a wonderful way to advertise your business and demonstrate your community support for an organization who is at the forefront of caring for those with mental illness.

Please consider joining Torrington Savings Bank, Lourdes of Litchfield and O & G as a sponsor. Your partnership will assure that the needs of Litchfield County’s most vulnerable are met with the dignity and respect they deserve on their road to recovery. Your generosity will enable us to achieve Prime Time House’s mission, vision and need for financial support. Use the button below to view Sponsorship Levels and pay on-line:

Volunteers Needed:

No matter what your talents are or how many hours you can offer, we could use your help! The pop-up store is largely successful because of the dedication of volunteers who give of their time and talents during the busy holiday season. Volunteers wear many hats, including cashing out customers, receiving donations, pricing goods, re-stocking shelves, greeting shoppers, and helping them with purchases.

If you would like to join our team, email:

You will be contacted by Jackie Miller who graciously donates her time to organize the volunteer schedule. Having done so since the inception of the store, Jackie is a prime example of how volunteers make PRIME FINDS a success!

Empowerment Through Giving

 This is not where you come and get service. This is where I come and give service. So that empowers me. I can be a service giver. The staff and members work side by side. Members make decisions for the clubhouse. It’s so empowering to be considered not a patient, not somebody with a label, but a member.
