Anney’s Closet


 

SmallLogoUsing household items donated by downsizing seniors, friends of Soroptimists, and other kindhearted folks in our community, we’ve created a “free store” for women and girls who need household items.

Girls and women who are referred to us from  advocates at our partner social service agencies have the opportunity to select items from Anney’s Closet that will transform their new apartments into functional and comfortable homes.

Our volunteers work to sort and arrange donated items in the Closet, build relationships with social agencies and the community,  and help the visitors pick out items for their new home.

The space for Anney’s Closet, three huge storage lockers in an immaculate indoor storage facility, is donated to us by the wonderful owners of West Shore U-Lock.

Who do we help?

When youth sign a Youth Agreement or age out of the foster care system, they head out to begin life on their own…often with only a few clothes or personal items to call their own. Same goes for women fleeing violence, domestic abuse or other unsafe living situations. They have no furniture, household items or “nice things” to set up their new home.

We work with a network of 36+ Social Service Agencies who refer clients to Anney’s Closet for a visit.The agency workers arrange the visit and assist with the shopping, and our volunteers coordinate delivery of furniture to their new home.
