Helping to provide basic needs, our community closet offers clients of Employment & Human Services Department new and gently-used clothing at no cost to them. Our Ready-to-Work Program provides professional interview clothing for our clients seeking employment. Our goals are to enhance the confidence and job readiness of Calworks clients by assisting them in choosing appropriate attire for interviews and providing each client with one or more outfits appropriate for their emergency or scheduled interview. Clients may utilize the clothing closet by receiving referrals from their Employment and Human Services Worker. We also provide casual clothing for our foster youths and diapers, layettes for infants & toddlers.
Thanks to the generosity of our community we are bursting at the seams! Unfortunately we cannot accept any clothing donations at this time.
*One Warm Coat
A warm coat is a must-have living in the Bay Area. No matter what time of the year it is – as the weather is unpredictable day to day. During the cold winter months of November – March we give them out to our low-income families and foster children. Our most vulnerable clients are the children and our homeless population. The only clothing item we accept are NEW or gently used coats, jackets, and rain gear. Any coat donated must be clean and ready to wear.
Homeless residents in Contra Costa County are in need of NEW or gently used, comfortable and clean sleeping bags. To donate a new warm coat or a sleeping bag, please call 925-521-5060.
