The Linen Closet
Providing Comfort, Hope, and Dignity through Linens
We are a Christian organization that provides new bed linens to transitional housing organizations. People enter temporary housing organizations as they rebuild their lives. Please join us in supporting the efforts of individuals working to restore their lives and family.
The Vision of The Linen Closet
To create a sense of home, security and well-being to those that experience hardship.
We are a registered 501(c)(3) organization whose mission is to provide comfort, hope and dignity to people in need by donating new linens to transitional housing organizations. We collect donations to purchase linen essentials and accept donations of new linen essentials to deliver to organizations that provide shelter, services, and support for individuals and families in crisis.
Who is The Linen Closet?
The Linen Closet was created in 2018 by a mother-daughter team to share the love of family and home with those rebuilding their lives. The Linen Closet is one way we serve our community. The Linen Closet reflects our shared passion for caring for others. Our hope is that through The Linen Closet we can help others build nurturing lives for themselves and their families, and experience tender, loving care.

The Scope of the Problem
Hundreds of people in our communities are without permanent housing. On any given night people are sleeping in temporary housing provided by organizations. People in transitional housing can be coming out of incarceration, rehabilitation, human trafficking, physical and mental abuse. Many people in transitional housing have physical and mental health challenges, many are veterans. Frequently all of the above are coupled with financial challenges, anxiety and loneliness.
