The Women’s Clothes Closet & Showers are open on Tuesdays & Thursdays, 9 AM – 12 PM!
(Hair Services on Thursday only)

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 and 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 conditions. Here, twice a week, women and children can receive showers, free clothing, shoes, and much-needed supplies. In addition, a Bible study is provided, along with a light snack and beverages. We now offer hair services to women every Thursday!

Our remodeled building is equipped with dozens of neatly displayed racks of fashionable clothing, shoes, purses, socks, undergarments, accessories, and toiletries. Children’s apparel and shoes are also provided for women with children ranging from infant to school age. Dressing rooms allow women to try on clothes, ensuring they fit and see themselves before taking things home. We aim to give each woman 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 socioeconomic backgrounds can come together and bear one another’s burdens, share hopes and dreams, or perhaps make a new friend.

Mondays and Wednesdays are set aside each week for volunteers to sort and size clothing, shoes, and accessories. These caring individuals ensure that the closet resembles a department store and help keep it tidy, organized, and presentable for shopping.

This wonderful ministry to our community’s poor and disadvantaged women 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.
