Hours: 10am-1pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays

MISSION:

Children most often come into foster care bringing no personal possessions with them to the foster home. A community clothes closet is a resource for foster families to visit quickly after receiving a placement and pick up quality clothing for these children free of charge. Through the generous provision of children's clothing and other items from the community, foster families will be able to use their resources in other ways for the children in their homes.

Seeking to follow Christ's example to love our neighbor as ourselves, the Chosen for Life Ministries Clothes Closet is a tangible way that people in our community can share their resources with others who will be greatly blessed by them.
