Opening a Door to a Better Future

Jake’s Network of Hope partners with other 501c3 nonprofits, school-based and faith-based groups who directly serve vulnerable people in our communities. This means our work supports diverse community needs, from foster care to afterschool programs, family needs and domestic abuse shelters, refugee work, poverty support, health programs and more. These collaborations mean partners can re-allocate time and money to instead focusing on their programs, while meeting human needs in the community.

We want to highlight the many ways our partners are making a difference for those most vulnerable individuals, many of whom are neighbors, peers, co-workers or connected to us in unknown ways. Poverty is more commonplace than we often think, and financial strain can often be situational and temporary. Our work ensures every individual experiencing hardship can still have their basic needs cared for and feel a sense of self worth.

Community Clothes Closet has been serving disadvantaged individuals and families in Northeastern Wisconsin since 1980. They believe clothing can open the door to a better future and are dedicated to their mission of providing free clothing to all people in need. 

Community Clothes Closet partnered with Jake’s about a year and a half ago to source new clothing at an affordable price. Our partnership has enabled the Community Clothes Closet to make a big impact.

“We have been able to source new clothing at an affordable price at Jake’s, which allowed us to provide that clothing for free to our 5,300 active clients,” said Johnna Vandeurzen of the nonprofit. 

We are very proud to be partnered with Community Clothes Closet!
