Reno and Washoe County clothes closets.

Washoe County clothing closets may provide very low income families free clothes and needed household items. This is often done by issuing a voucher, which will allow the client to acquire what they need. The goal is to not turn anyone away, so the clothes closets also partner with thrift stores in Reno, which often help more moderate income households. Find some or all of the following from the centers.

-Personal hygiene kits.
-Clothes for work, such as suits, work boots, pants, dresses, and more.
-Children from struggling households can apply for free back to school supply programs.

The hours are limited, and Washoe area families should call in advance. Also, not every person will qualify for free clothes or goods. So they can try a thrift store instead. Whether the supplies are given for free, or at a reduced price, assistance is available.
