Every Child Deserves the Essentials
The Treehouse Wearhouse is a free store where youth in foster care and their caregivers can shop for high quality new and like-new clothing, shoes, school supplies, toys, books, free tickets to events, and other essentials.
Our store carries 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.

Treehouse referred 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. During a youth’s birthday month they can pick out one extra item.
In order to shop for a Treehouse eligible child, you just need to be the listed caregiver and bring a picture ID. We ask that caregivers are present when shopping for younger kids; kids in your care who are 13 and older are welcome to shop by themselves with picture ID. You are also welcome to bring your non-Treehouse eligible kids with you, but please understand that we cannot provide childcare while you shop.
Caseworkers, and other adults may also shop for eligible Treehouse youth as long as the youth’s primary caregiver has called us in advance to give approval.
Teens shopping on their own are welcome to bring a friend or two along, but if the store is busy we may ask friends to wait in our lobby.
You can pick up tickets (limit of 2 tickets per Treehouse youth, please) at the Information and Resources desk in the Wearhouse during one of your regularly scheduled shopping visits.
To view ticket availability and to request tickets online, complete our Funding & Ticket request form or contact firstname.lastname@example.org. Submitting a request for tickets does not guarantee a ticket. Please wait for e-mail confirmation.
Please allow one hour to shop and arrive at least 30 minutes before we close.
Please bring a photo ID to check in. We also offer an incentive of one extra item if you bring your own reusable bags.
We receive inventory every day and work hard to restock the store after each shopping day.

We would love to have you re-donate items that you are no longer using.
Freshly stocked items are available for youth with a Treehouse referral. However, items marked with blue tags can go to support any additional household needs.
