Clothing Center

MEND’s Clothing Center is set up like any mall shop with attractive window displays and well-organized clothing for men, women and children. Clothing assistance is available for clients once every six months.

Clients receive:

  • Up to one hour to search and select clothing
  • Up to 7 clothing outfits per family member
  • Volunteer Assistance

Every year, over 20 organizations host clothing drives for the Clothing Center allowing us to provide clothes for every occasion, including business attire for MEND’s job trainees, and children’s clothing for school. Diapers and baby wipes are also available for those in need.

Clothing Donation

For information on how to donate new and gently used clothing and shoes to the Clothing Center, please visit the Clothing Donations Accepted page.

Powered By Volunteers

The Clothing Center is powered by volunteers including our own clients, job trainees, physically and developmentally challenged individuals, and students. Volunteers are always needed to collect, sort and distribute and pick-up donated clothing.

Clothing Center Partners

The Clothing Center is grateful for the assistance of its lead partner, Costco Van Nuys, as well as that of these organizations.
