Jose's Closet is committed to helping families supporting vulnerable children by providing items to make family life easier.
Due to the current Covid-19 issues, Jose‘s Closet will be closed until further notice.
Many of the families we serve have members in high-risk groups, and we want to be as cautious as possible.
Donors - please hold your items until we reopen, if possible.
Volunteers - please watch our website for updates. We will need your help when we can reopen.
Members - if you need food pantry items, diapers, or clothing please call Wendy at 480-309-1743 to make arrangements by Saturday March 14th.
If your family includes foster, kinship, or adoptive families, Jose's Closet would be happy to be part of your support system!

We love to work with individuals and groups, such as student, school, neighborhood, corporate, scouting, or church groups. We rely on our volunteers to open Jose's Closet to our members.
Would you like to help?
We rely on assistance from people like you to keep our resource center operational. We are an Arizona Qualified Foster Care Organization, which means your donation may be claimed as a Tax Credit when filing your Arizona Personal Income Tax Return! See our "AZ Tax Credit" page for more information!
The Arizona QFCO Tax Credit is separate from other Tax Credits, such as those offered to schools. You can give to multiple organizations each year.
In addition to needing your financial support, our Resource Center accepts donations of new or gently used clothing, equipment, toys & games, and more - any items used by babies, children, and youth!
Our resource center is entirely staffed by volunteers, whose schedules may require last-minute adjustments.
Due to safety & security concerns we have no after-hours drop-off available.

Our Resource Center provides foster, kinship, and adoptive families with clothing, gear, and lots more to help ease the financial burden of raising these special children.
We provide gently used, donated items to families. Families are able to come to Jose's Closet to select needed items for each child in their home. Raising kids is expensive, and we try to support those who are raising children not originally their own.
Jose was a cherished foster child whose dying wish was to not be forgotten. Our founder started Jose's Closet in memory of this special child who was gone too soon.
Knowing how challenging it can be to accept a new child into her home, she started Jose's Closet to help other foster families find the items they needed for the children who arrive in their homes with little to no belongings.
What began in a spare closet has expanded to fill over 10,000 sq feet of retail space - and we continue growing!
Jose was born on July 22, 1997 and became an angel on November 4, 2007.
We operate our Resource Center to provide needed items to our member families. Gently used clothing, shoes, baby gear, sports equipment, books, toys, games, and more are available to every child in the home.
We accept donations of gently used goods, new gift items and school supplies, gift cards, and monetary donations to help keep our resource center stocked and operational.
