Dawn Beedle was the visionary who initiated the clothing program. Having recognized an unmet need in our community, she created Dawn’s Closet and in 2005, she partnered with Valley Outreach. Originally offering only career wear to women, the program expanded to provide clothing for the entire family. A tireless advocate, and committed volunteer, Dawn spent years serving others through various board of directors roles and community leadership positions. Dawn passed away in the fall of 2007, yet her energy and her legacy carries on through the strength of the current program.

The Clothing Closet

The Clothing Closet helps clients meet their critical clothing needs. The selection of clothing available for all ages gives clients the opportunity to ensure that growing children have clothes that fit, adults can dress confidently for the workplace, all individuals are warm and comfortably dressed in the winter months, and that all have access to the basic clothing needs of socks and underwear.

We provide clothing to about 100 families each month.
