Mission Statement: “In the spirit of God’s love, we seek to care for others in a non-judgmental environment by providing clean, gently used clothing to people in need in our community.”

The Closet of Hope is a free clothing store that is available for anyone in need who live in Bloomington and Richfield (ID required, birth certificates for children).

Leviticus 25:35- “Suppose one of your own people becomes poor.  And suppose he cannot take care of himself.  Then help him just as you would an outsider or someone who is living among you for a while.  In that way, the man who is poor can continue to live among you.”
