Clay County Clothes Closet is here to help residents of Northland Kansas City, MO who are facing financial or emergency hardships by providing free clothing assistance. All individuals served at Clay County Clothes Closet are given the opportunity to select a wardrobe of clothing to help them sustain their needs for school and work, and to successfully maintain their lives in the community. Our organization serves the entire family, from newborns to seniors, and we look forward to helping anyone in our community who has a need for adequate, clean, well-fitting clothing.


We are happy to help anybody who needs our assistance to get free clothing, but please be aware that we do not offer walk-in/anytime service. We have a limited amount of time when volunteer staff is available to assist with fittings, and we rely 100% on volunteer staff to help facilitate services. We coordinate through appointments to make sure that we have staff available to assist everybody who needs help. Please do not come to our facility without an appointment.

For Non-Emergency Situations:

We serve Northland Kansas City residents on a per appointment basis. Individuals and families requesting clothing assistance must work with one of our partner referral agencies to set an appointment. We have more than 50 referral agency partners available to assist you with booking an appointment: churches, schools, and social service agencies of all types. Please choose an agency that you are most familiar with or comfortable with.

When you are ready to arrange an appointment to receive free clothing from Clay County Clothes Closet, please contact one of the referring agencies listed below, or your school counselor if you are requesting on behalf of any school-aged children in your household.

For Emergency Situations:

We also provide clothing for individuals and families in emergency situations, such as loss due to fire, immediate removal from the home due to domestic violence, or immediate loss of a job. Emergency situation assistance is available to all persons in the Kansas City Metro Area, not just residents of the Northland KC area. For obvious reasons, we offer expedited priority access to emergency appointments, which can be initiated through a partnering referral agency listed below or by using our direct web contact form and indicating your request as an emergency.
