The Clothes Closet & More
The Clothes Closet & More was established in 2005 through The Eagle's Nest as a faith based organization working to meet clients at their point of need and provide them assistance. All programs are free of charge and there are no income, race, gender, residency, or other requirements to receive services.
The hurricanes of 2008 proved a catalyst for new programs and growth; while originally staffed completely by volunteers, The Clothes Closet now has 7 employees who work alongside our wonderful volunteers.
We offer many programs including a clothing room with sizes infant through adult , including job appropriate clothing. Our Sack Lunch program provides two sandwiches, chips or crackers, fruit or a dessert, and water on Fridays and Saturdays each week. Students in elementary school can receive tutoring by a certified teacher. A certified Windows instructor offers both Basic and Intermediate classes along with help for those working on resumes and job searches. Our Children's program provides sponsors who make certain the special child they choose to help has a blessed Christmas.
Other programs include quarterly health screenings, a maternity clothing room, and Cinderella's Closet-a program that provides prom wear for boys and girls who would otherwise not be able to purchase suits or gowns. Our staff also works closely with CPS to help families who have gone through crisis. Fire, flood, hurricane, and other natural disasters provide the opportunity for us to help with short term housing, as well as small household ite
