Catie's Closet improves school attendance by providing clothing and toiletries to children in need, right within their schools.
Today, we're found in 54 schools in Massachusetts & New Hampshire and we help 32,000 boys and girls from preschool to grade 12.
We do what we do because children are the largest age group living in poverty in the United States.

FOCUSING ON children in need, WE'VE REDUCED ABSENTEEISM, ENCOURAGED KIDS OFF THE STREETS AND BACK INTO THE SCHOOL TO FOCUS ON THEIR FUTURE.
Our mission has caught the attention of many influential organizations along the way.
