Having the opportunity to volunteer at Amelia's Closet has been such a rewarding experience. I have thoroughly enjoyed learning from Mrs. Jody Powers and Mrs. Candy Russell. They are passionate about helping their clients, and setting them up for success. The compassion they show towards these women in need is truly heartwarming.

Kindness with quality is the key at Amelia’s Closet. Giving women the clothing, accessories and peace of mind to re-emerge as their best selves! Jody and her team celebrate each donation with a grateful heart and accept each client with a belief that instills confidence and love. ‘What would Jesus do?’ is a phrase lived out each day here. Valuing volunteers, caring for clients and lifting each other up is the recipe that makes this nonprofit’s leadership team so wonderful. Filling a need with a spirit of unconditional love.

This amazing charity gives hope to women who have lost their way and are starting fresh by providing clothing, shoes and accessories that enable them to stand tall and proud as they interview for jobs! To see these women first walk through Amelia's Closet door, their body language tells their story before they ever speak a word! And then to see them as they leave with a bag of their chosen outfits with a smile and their head held high with hope, it is beyond heartwarming! Thank you Jody Powers for dreaming of and making Amelia's Closet a reality ......a clothier of true hope!!

Amelia's Closet has helped many woman with clothing and accessories but the most important touch is the personal attention and encourage that each woman receives.

As one who has advised and strategies with the leaders it is an amazing passion that drives them to make a significant impact in the clients.

The volunteers display an amazing amount of compassion and optimism that permeates the entire process. Truly an organization changing lives one at a time.

I have volunteered and worked around the founders of this organization. What a heart for people! The positivity and energy is contagious. I would highly recommend for you to get involved, they need skilled electrical assistance, some construction, cleaning, painting, and as always cash donations to keep helping others.
