The Closet Ministry is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization committed to sharing the love of Jesus by providing quality used and new clothing, shoes and linens to families facing financial stress. The Closet was established in 2009 with the simple vision to collect clothing and give it to families in need in our community. We began our operation in a small room of one family’s home. After just a few months, we had collected such an abundance of clothing we moved to the attic of Southbrook Church’s Monroe Campus. We quickly outgrew that space and have moved several times to accommodate the donations received.

Our mission is to share the love of Jesus and help lift economic burdens by providing quality used and new clothing, shoes and linens to men, women, and children whose families are under financial strain.


Your tax deductible financial contribution will help The Closet Ministry open additional locations and support our current locations.
