About Us

Alicia's Closet is a nonprofit organization serving foster children and families in the Central Ohio area. We provide infant to teen size clothing, shoes, coats, backpacks, toys, baby accessories and other essentials, at no cost to families. 

As foster/adoptive parents ourselves, we understand firsthand the needs that exist within the foster care community. After becoming acclimated to life as foster parents, it quickly became apparent that tangible resources are a constant need, and thus, Alicia's Closet (named after our daughter) was born. 

We are a family run organization and our children are our "why." They are an integral part of this organization; not only do they help sort and fold clothing, but they truly understand our mission as they have been in the shoes of the children we serve.
