New Clothes For Children Who Are Homeless

Providing new clothes to homeless children in MPS

Approximately 4,000 students in Milwaukee Public Schools are homeless. With no homes, they often don’t have adequate clothes for school, either. 

A partnership between Milwaukee Public Schools and Urban Threads provides these children with clothes for school, from underwear to outerwear.

Brand New, Brand Name

Urban Threads is a clothing distribution center that provides brand-new, brand-name clothing that’s always free to children in need. We sort and arrange our clothing in department-store fashion, so the kids can have a fun “shopping” experience, assisted by personal shoppers (our trained volunteers).

With so many children in need, it’s a challenge to keep our racks stocked with clothes. We receive contributions of clothing from some companies but the demand far outweighs the supply; we need your help, too.
