About Us

Our Mission

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.

How Can I Join?

Our Beginning

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.

Our Needs

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.

Donate clothing and other items today!

Donate

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!
