Saturday, March 20th was a beautiful day for a Grand Opening Ribbon Cutting and Open House for our new closet exclusively for teens in foster care and beyond...
We are located at 364 Cleveland Street in Ringgold and open by appointment via the website or by calling Alicia at 706-934-8202. You can also send her an email if you need additional help or have questions.
What to Expect
When you walk up to our front door, you are greeted by landscaping donated from local businesses and members of the community. They wanted our visitors to feel invited and honored. Entering the building you will see that it is set up for a complete shopping experience. Racks and racks of clothes are available and all for free. Our guests are handed a shopping bag and they get to pick out whatever they need and want. We do not impose limits at this time, the generosity of the community is abundant and appreciated.
If there is ever a situation that requires us to shop for a client for quick pick up, we are happy to pull clothing and pack it up for you. Our hope is to eventually provide a door drop service with the help of certified volunteers who want to make life as easy as possible, all with the goal of reducing trauma. Sometimes, just having items delivered keeps down the stress level in the home for new foster care youth.
Help Us, Help You
In order to keep our inventory full, ask for donations from businesses, apply for future grants, and keep things moving smoothly, we ask that you fill out our required Service Form online. It's a simply form that helps us keep track of the areas we serve, what items are most needed, and the overall impact of our organization. Below is a link to our form and a link to make an appointment to visit the closet.
