The Women’s Clothes Closet is now open Tuesdays and Thursdays!!!

The Women’s Clothes Closet was renovated in 2006 to meet the needs of homeless women and children. One of the most alarming trends we see is a growing number of women and children on the streets, as well as the swelling ranks of the working poor. Sadly, many single women and mothers can’t make ends meet. Each year, as the number grows, the need for more facilities to assist becomes more critical, and The Union Gospel Mission has responded to the need. Here, once a week, women and children can receive clothing, shoes, and much-needed supplies, all free of charge. In addition, a Bible study is provided, along with a light snack and beverages.

Our remodeled building is equipped with dozens of neatly displayed racks of fashionable clothing, shoes, purses, socks, and undergarments, as well as accessories and toiletries. Children’s clothing and shoes are also provided for women with children ranging from infant to school age. Dressing rooms allow women to try on clothes, making sure they fit and see themselves before they take things home. Our goal is to give each woman that comes in a shopping experience and restore dignity in a loving, Christ-centered atmosphere.

The Women’s Closet is staffed by caring volunteers who assist each guest. Bible study leaders and volunteers are available to listen and encourage. As shopping concludes, volunteers can visit and build relationships with one another. Here, women from all social/economic backgrounds can come together and bear one another’s burdens, share hopes and dreams, or perhaps make a new friend.

Each week, Wednesday is set aside for volunteers to come together to sort and size clothing, shoes, and accessories. These caring individuals make sure that the closet resembles a department store and help to keep it tidy, organized, and presentable for shopping.

This wonderful ministry to the poor and indigent women of our community relies on the generosity of people like you. Women’s and children’s clothing in all sizes and in good condition are needed as well as socks, undergarments, and toiletries which are always a pressing need.
