Who we are.

We are here for all people, all ages, all circumstances.

Northland Clothing Center (formerly Clay County Clothes Closet) is dedicated to assisting individuals and families receive clothing on a per-need basis. We focus on restoring dignity, self-respect, and hope through the gift of clothing to residents of the KC (MO) Northland, with emergency services (loss due to fire, domestic violence, or other situation) available to counties outside the Northland.

We line our walls with clothing racks of new and gently-used clothing, shoes, and new undergarments, provided free of charge to people who are referred to us by members of our referral partner network.

Why we need referral partners.

Northland Clothing Center is excellent at sourcing and distributing clothing to individuals and families who need our assistance and services. Referral partners – schools, social service agencies, churches, shelters, and others – are equipped with the resources and expertise needed to reach everyone in our community who might need clothing. We rely on our referral partners to discover and qualify individuals who have a genuine need for clothing, and to assist and communicate with those individuals throughout the service process.
