Remember having that perfect outfit for the first day of school? Or telling your friends about your excitement about your favorite holiday gift? So do we. Kids and youth in foster care need the clothing and other items they need to fit in at school and feel great about themselves.

The Treehouse Wearhouse is a free store where youth and their caregivers can shop for high quality new and like-new clothing, shoes, school supplies, toys, books and other essentials. We carry clothes for infants, children and teens in all sizes. We work closely with our community to ensure that items in the store reflect current trends, brands and fashions along with the basics every kid needs.

Starting August 1, 2015, each youth can shop in the Wearhouse up to 6 times per year (Maximum of one visit per month, please). In December, youth can use one of their 6 annual visits to shop our special selection of holiday gifts. Additionally, caregivers can get an extra visit for each new youth placed in their care within one month of placement. Questions? Please contact the Wearhouse at 206.267.5185.
