WHO WE ARE
The Clay County Clothes Closet is a 100% volunteer operated organization dedicated to assisting impoverished individuals and families receive clothing on a per need basis. Our focus is on restoring dignity, self-respect, and hope through the gift of clothing to those families residing in Clay County, MO, where circumstances have denied them access to clothing.
We line our walls with clothing racks of new and gently used clothing, shoes, and new undergarments to give away free of charge to any impoverished individuals or families referred to us by our referral partner network, and we uniquely serve the entire family, infant through senior citizen.
WHY WE NEED REFERRAL PARTNERS
Clay County Clothes Closet is excellent at sourcing and distributing clothing to impoverished individuals who need our assistance and services, but we don’t have the resources (or expertise) to personally reach everybody in our community who might need our help. We rely on third-party social service providers as our referral partners to assist us in discovering and qualifying individuals that have a genuine need for our assistance and to assist and keep those individuals engaged throughout the service process.

Emergency service appointments are available for circumstances such as loss from fire, removal from the home due to domestic abuse and immediate loss of job and is available to all persons, not just residents of Clay County Missouri.

Upon receipt of the completed CCCC Referral Form, our Scheduler will respond with an appointment date/time within 24-hours of your request. Please notify your client of their Clothes Closet appointment information.
