We need your financial help!

Our annual donation drive is coming to a close and we are short of our goal to cover storage facility and other operational costs. Please consider a tax deductible donation to help us. Read the details from our Director on the Donate page.

We love Concordia Nursing!

Concordia students have been working with Clothing the Homeless offering services such as health screening for the homeless as part of their school training and even volunteering their time to help with clothing distributions. Read more about one nursing student who was inspired by CTH.

Special Acknowledgment

We are so very appreciative of the many years of support we have received from the Bisnar Chase Personal Injury Attorneys. We couldn’t do what we do without their financial support and donations of important items like backpacks, towels, blankets, winter gloves, socks, water bottles, hygiene kits, and much more. We are forever grateful!

Volunteer Opportunities

All distributions are currently held outdoors with safety precautions. We supply face masks, sanitizers and plastic face shields, as needed.

We have an upcoming distribution and volunteers are needed.

"Ninja Runs"

The Covid pandemic and restrictions have impacted all of us.

We've been fortunate to have our generous sponsors and other big-hearted individuals continue to donate backpacks, clothing and other items. Since many of our past distribution sites were closed due to Covid, we had to think of new ways to distribute clothing and other necessities to the increasing number of people living on the streets. For most of this year, our Director Mitch and a few other dedicated volunteers have conducted impromptu "Ninja Runs". (The name was coined by our long time supporter Pastor Steve Phillips from Journey Church.)

For our Ninja runs, we fill backpacks with clothing and other necessities. We load the van with these backpacks, along with sweaters, jackets, etc. We drive to areas in Costa Mesa, Santa Ana, Anaheim, Stanton, and Riverside to distribute these items directly to people living on the streets. We've been able to serve over 600 individuals with some basic necessities to help them survive on the streets.

We are grateful for all your monetary, clothing and other items donated to help make these runs possible.

Shoes Needed

A good pair of shoes can make a world of difference to the homeless. We have a big need for shoe donations.

Amazing Volunteers

We rely 100% on volunteers from all faiths and backgrounds to help at distributions and our "Ninja Runs".

How You Can Help
Quote from Cathy at MHA

"I can't thank you enough for your donations to our agency today. The donation was incredibly generous. I hope that you did enjoy giving as much as I enjoy all the hope and comfort these clothes will bring to the people I serve every day."
