Free Clothing & Necessities Boutique For Women
Our Sister’s Closet (OSC) is a free, donation-based clothing boutique for anyone who identifies as a woman or for non-binary individuals who are in transition in their life, whether they are going to work, school, court, or looking for employment. OSC offers 90 minute 1-on-1 sessions focused on outfitting a client with clothing to help them feel beautiful, to boost their confidence, and help them get ready to achieve set goals. On average, each client receives between 3 to 5 outfits, plus shoes, makeup, accessories, and personal hygiene products.
