Alicia's Closet supports foster families in Central Ohio through support groups, respite events, and a free store. We are looking for more volunteers to help out either regularly, or at one time events. There are over 3,000 children in foster care each year in Franklin County, and there are so many ways to support families. Reach out for more information on volunteering!

About ALICIAS CLOSET

Location:

1509 Blatt Blvd, Gahanna, OH 43230, US

Mission Statement

Alicia's Closet is a nonprofit organization serving the foster care community in Franklin County and surrounding areas. We provide infant to teen/young adult sized clothing, shoes, coats, backpacks, toys, diapers & wipes, baby accessories and other essentials, at no cost to families.

Description

We are happy to serve children in foster care of all ages, and teens/youth who are in the process of aging out (or have recently aged out) of the foster care system. (We have professional attire available if needed for job interviews, etc. and our children's section is open to any young adults in this situation who are also parents). We also extend help to families who are reunifying after their children have spent time in foster care. We are proponents of family preservation and supporting families as they continue to overcome whatever barriers they were facing initially, so we often provide resources as part of this purpose.

By supplying much needed items to children/youth in the foster care community, we hope to help create a sense of comfort and normalcy during a very difficult, uncertain time. In the process, we also hope to create genuine connections with families and provide support to foster parents/caregivers.
