Eliminating Clothing Insecurity

 The Wardrobe is a nonprofit social enterprise located in Philadelphia, PA that uses clothing to inspire change. Each year, we process more than $2M worth of donated clothing to outfit people for life or work. Clothing combined with personalized support helps people look and feel their best to move forward in their lives. 

At The Wardrobe, we realize that clothing is not just fashionable, but essential.  The average family spends $1,800 per year on clothing.  Like food and housing insecurity, someone is clothing insecure when they cannot afford to purchase the clothing they need.  Thanks to The Wardrobe, they can receive a free outfit for work or life just by asking for our help. Your Wardrobe Box subscriptions make this possible because  each Box sold, provides an outfit for free to someone in need.Write your rich text here!

At The Wardrobe,  everyone - and everything - deserves a second chance

Whether someone needs a suit for an interview, an outfit that supports their transition to independence or adulthood, or affirm their gender identity, The Wardrobe is open to them and here to help.  

With locations in Philadelphia, Delaware, and Bucks Counties in PA and Wardrobe Boxes sent to anyone outside our area, The Wardrobe outfits people with more than clothing. 

After coming to The Wardrobe, 98% of our participants leave with increased confidence and ability to present a professional image which leads to 91% remaining engaged in their job search, and a 68% employment rate within 6 months.  Although 90% of our participants come to us eligible for government assistance programs, 60% transition off cash assistance once working.

The Wardrobe Box is a seasonal subscription box of high quality secondhand clothing and accessories for men and women. Purchases support the nonprofit Career Wardrobe (dba The Wardrobe), using clothing to support and inspire change in the Philadelphia Region. Learn more at www.wardrobepa.org
