About Sharia?s Closet

Location:

6244 El Cajon Blvd Unit #5, San Diego, CA 92115, US

Mission Statement

We provide free, emergency clothing to individuals and families who are experiencing financial hardship or crisis.

Description

Sharia's Closet is a small but mighty non-profit providing clothing for individuals and families in and around the San Diego community who are facing financial hardship or crisis. We provide personalized empowerment in the form of new/gently used clothing for those in need of our services, victims of domestic violence, natural disasters, and human trafficking as well as unsheltered /homeless, unemployed. We know proper clothing helps people maintain a sense of dignity and self-esteem in times of insecurity.

The impact of Sharia's Closet: Since starting this personal movement to provide relief to our community members that are experiencing clothing insecurities. Since 2013, we have distributed over 17,000 customized clothing bags at no cost to children and adults. We hear stories of how our clothing care packages have helped parents confidently find jobs and send their children to school with clean and well-fitting clothing.

How it works: Sharia's Closet is connected to community members in need through direct referrals from a network of local social services organizations that help identify those that are in the greatest need of services. Typically, a case manager within a social service agency or program conducts a needs assessment. If clothing is needed, they submit a request to us. A staff member or volunteer at Sharia's Closet packs a customized bag of hand-selected clothing for each individual based on their preferences and needs. Usually within a day or two!

We live by our vision and values. The vision of Sharia's Closet is to empower people of our community with clothes to promote self-esteem and self-identity. We believe in dignity and respect. We honor people by providing them with the care, concern, and consideration they deserve. We know people deserve to feel valued and be treated ethically. We value quality and personalization, knowing everyone is different and deserves to be treated as an individual.

Hours: 15-20 hours per week; Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday, 12:00 pm to 5:00 pm. Two Saturdays per month, 11:00 am to 3:00 pm.

To create a workplace that meets maximum health and safety standards, Sharia's Closet follows all mandated COVID-19 safety protocols and guidelines as outlined by the State of California, San Diego County, and the CDC.
