Comfortable Inclusive Space

Our gender neutral closet aims to provide garments that every child can enjoy regardless of their gender, and rejects the idea that pink is for females and blue is for male. From hoodies to jeans to everyday accessories, these stylish and comfortable gender-neutral clothes fit into everyone's wardrobe regardless of their gender.

Our food pantry program offers food to individuals and families in need. We serve members of the LGBTQIA+ , college students, low income families, single parents, senior citizens, unemployed individuals, disabled veterans, working poor, and anyone else that comes to the pantry for food assistance. We serve everyone regardless of their race, gender, orientation, color, or religion.
