Clothing the Homeless


We serve approximately 100 people each time out. This includes warm clothing for the winter months and related items such as tennis shoes, back packs and toiletries.

We have been going into the city of Santa Ana for over 8 years now. We go to the Civic Center area and the Mental Health Assoc.

We give bags and bags of clothing to the Salvation Army Emergency Shelter and Isaiah House (a shelter for women.)

We provide clothing when requested for Skid Row homeless and other areas in Southern Calif. We have provided clothing to many American Indian Reservations.

In between we are busy collecting, sorting, washing, and marking sizes on each article. We store all of our donations in a storage facility and the preparation is the hardest part. It takes hours and lots of hands.

Mission Statement

Our goal is to meet the necessary needs of the homeless population with adequate clothing for the different seasons and elements of weather. We also want to provide decent, clean clothing to give these people a boost in their already low self esteem. This will help in scheduling and appearing at interviews if they look presentable.

We believe with the amount of clothing that is thrown away every day there is no reason people are going without decent, basic clothing.

Our goal is to distribute them to the people who are in need and not drop them off somewhere thinking it will get done.

I thought they didn't need more volunteers. I tried to use my dad's website.

This is a very rewarding volunteer opportunity for the individual or organization. Dealing with Sue has been a sincere pleasure. Do not hesitate to make donation/send much needed items to Clothing the Homeless.

This is such an incredible opportunity to help people living on the streets. It is ideal for small groups. There is not a huge time commitment;a couple of hours. It is so well organized & efficient. A real blessing to be able to provide good, clean, useful clothes & other needed items.
