About Sharia’s Closet
Sharia’s Closet is a small but mighty non-profit that provides clothing for San Diego families and community members experiencing severe financial hardship or other crisis. We provide personalized empowerment in the form of new or gently used clothing and personal hygiene essentials for San Diego’s most vulnerable populations: victims of domestic violence, survivors of human trafficking, and those enduring homelessness.
How it works: Sharia’s Closet serves community members in need through direct referrals from local social services organizations. Typically, a case manager within a social service agency or program conducts a needs assessment, and if clothing is needed, they submit a request to us. A volunteer at Sharia’s Closet packs a customized bag of hand-selected clothing for each individual based on their preferences, clothing and shoe sizes, and needs. Usually within a day or two!
