Catie’s Closet, provides, through it’s in-school, discreet resource, essential clothing and basic necessities to homeless students and those living below the poverty line. Students are able to privately access what they need – which helps remove barriers to learning and school attendance. Participating students want to attend school. We are helping kids fit in, feel valued and focus on education. By providing a hand-up over a hand-out, we are leveling the playing field for at-risk students.
