Clothed By Faith, Inc. is an amazing organization with dedicated staff and founder. I work with hundreds of charities each year across the State of Texas. Sometimes you find one that goes above and beyond to show respect to their clients. Each client offers input as to their favorite colors, styles, patterns. Each item is lovingly put together in a large brand new shopping bag like you would find in a department store. All clothes are coordinated, shoes as well, new socks and under garments are given. The shoes are polished and placed in a clear cellophane bag tied with a bow and placed carefully on top of the neatly folded clothing. It looks as though it came from a fine department store selected for that person. As if that is not enough, they also provide clothing for many charities across the Greater Houston area, Katy and beyond such as Dress for Success, many of the thrift stores across the greater area as well. I am thankful Clothed By Faith was started because they set a high standard for others to follow and live up to. They are amazing people.

We Fort Bend Family Promise are so Grateful for the clothing and shoes that Clothed By Faith give our Families. Mothers or the Fathers would fill out the list of each of the children according to what they needed. When our children received their clothing or shoes the SMILES of Happiness is so Great. Getting these clothes gives our youth enthusiasm , and confident about going to school or being around their friends .The parents of these children can go on interviews, and if they have a job they can go nicely dressed with comfortable shoes
Clothed By Faith is surely a Blessing to Fort Bend Family Promise Families. Thank you All for what you Do.

I have been involved with many charitable organizations through the years. I have served as a volunteer with Clothed by Faith for about 3 years now. They are the most organized, true to their mission statement, Christian hearted organization I have had the privilege of serving. They are always finding ways to serve their community in the best ways possible with the funds they have.

I have been volunteering for about 2 years. When I moved to Katy, Texas I wanted a place where I could feel like I was truly helping people. Clothed by Faith has provided that for me. I feel blessed to be a part of an organization that is totally committed to helping anyone in need of clothing. The staff are a truly amazing group of ladies who always go above and beyond to help our clients as well as their volunteers. While a lot of organizations you can donate to resale your items, CBF gives them free. They also make sure that the bags of clothing that the clients are receiving is of the quality that any of us would be glad to wear. Monetary donations are needed for items like men’s and women’s underwear, since these are essential and not an item we would want to give or accept that was previously used. I know there are a lot of other items that monetary donations are needed for just to keep this wonderful ministry running also.

I volunteered with Clothed By Faith during Hurricane Harvey and their work to support and help our community was amazing. They did an incredible job of pulling resources with other non-profits and quickly shifting their focus as needs in the community changed. I currently act as a liaison between Clothed by Faith and my church that collects donations. Their focus on God's grace and providing dignity to those in need is heart warming.

Clothed By Faith is such a wonderful place in our Katy community. I have taken several families and individuals there to get help with clothing. They are so kind and compassionate in giving to those in need!!

The individuals behind making these bags of clothes are sweet, kind, and very caring!! This is an AMAZING organization that was able to meet our needs. When I could not provide for my kids they came thru and blessed each one of us ❤ I would like to thank Clothed by Faith for not only filling our needs but highering our self esteem with these clothes and shoes. The appearance of an individual is what is noticed first and they help you to look sharp but what receiving does to a person inside is remarkable! This organization is truly a blessing

Leaders of the org go above and beyond to bring quality needed clothes to some of the most desperate persons. Known for gifting clothes to children pulled from their homes, families victimized by fire, kids known as “couch surfers” or raising themselves, and men / women trying to get back on their feet. They show the love of Jesus by loving people where they are in life and demonstrating empathy not judgement.

I have been impressed with Clothed by Faith since day one. What they do is greatly needed in our community. I worked for an organization where they provided formal attire for some of the young ladies to wear to a gala. Everything was included: shoes, handbag, gown and shawl. The joy that these clothes and accessories brought to the girls is imprinted in my mind. For one night, they forgot about their troubles of homelessness and they each felt like a princess. My wish would be that more and more people would donate good quality, slightly worn clothes for the so many in the Houston area that are in need.

Clothed by Faith is a perfect example of God's rich and abundant blessings when we do what He's asked us to do. What began as a great idea has become an extraordinary gift to the community. I love how they not only clothe those in need, they are also there to help children who need shoes for school. It's our go-to place for clothing donations....and my number one suggestion when I know someone is closet cleaning and needing a place to take children's clothes that are no longer needed. I often grab packages of socks and underwear at Target to add to our CBF bag.......because they are full service!!! What a huge blessing this organization is........

There are so many things I love about this nonprofit. Three of the things that I feel make it stand out are as follows: 1) It is unique, giving out not only gently used clothing to those in need but clothing that is clean, desirable and thoughtfully put together to make clients feel good 2) Operational costs are carried entirely by donations - you won’t find clothing bags with a price tag attached unless it is a high end item designated for a special fundraiser sale 3) This nonprofit doesn’t judge clients. It doesn’t matter what your ethnicity, financial status or reasons are for requesting clothing. You are trusted and in the spirit of giving you are rewarded with what you need without having to jump through hoops to get it. This is truly a charity worthy of Jesus who gave lovingly without judging. CBF is also a great place to volunteer. Can’t say enough good things about it.

When I started babysitting Abi's daughter over 6 years ago, so she could devote more time to get her non-profit started, little did I know just how much Clothed By Faith would grow & just how many people it would help. Abi is a true servant to the Lord & an angel here on earth. She is one of the sweetest people I've ever had the pleasure of knowing & literally would give the shirt off her back to help a person in need.
I wish her and CBF many many more years of success and now that I've retired from Grace Preschool I look forward to joining their wonderful volunteers on a regular basis.

Clothed by Faith has been such a blessing for the homeless youth at Covenant House Texas. They not only provide clothes for our city's homeless upon request but the clothes are good as new and exactly what we would all put our own kids in. They take pride in what they do and provide. Recently, the Prision Entrepreneurship Program also has reached out to Clothed By Faith to provide residents with clothing in general and suitable for job search. Clothed by Faith gives of their best in time, quality of clothing and in love for the needs of our community.

I first learned about this charity when I was looking for options to donate some gently used clothes. Some places I have been to have piles of unsorted things that make me wonder what really happens to them all, so I started looking around. This place looked to have a good mission, and I like the idea of helping somewhere local. After a year of donating on my own, my daughter had the opportunity to volunteer there through the Girl Scouts. They have this amazing day training where the girls learn about how they operate, and put together a couple outfits for another child. Clothed by Faith has a neat sorting system for all their usable donations, and they put together outfits for entire families. From what I understand, they receive specific requests from all around town, and do their best to put together full outfits for families. It's so lovely to know that the clothes are going directly to families that need them, at no cost!

When I first heard "clothing nonprofit" I pictured a dingy, disorganized, church basement somewhere that smelled damp and felt cramped.

Clothed By Faith is the EXACT OPPOSITE. It is so well organized and has served the community in such an outstanding way. As a church leader and worker in the nonprofit world, we have partnered together so well in the past. They not only distribute clothing, but they give away dignity to everyone they come into contact with.

It is fantastic! So much so, that I became a staff member because I believe in their mission so strongly.

I have been volunteering at Clothed by Faith for about 2 years. This organization stands out from others for four reasons. 1. They treat all their volunteers with love and appreciation every single day providing water, snacks and encouraging conversation. 2. They are very organized and know how to keep all those donations sorted, labeled and stored in a productive way for giveaway to people in need. 3. They spend your money and distribute the donations wisely. 4. They only give away quality clothing because they treat the people in need as they would treat their own family. What an amazing place to serve the Lord!

I am a supporter and donor to a great non profit who is there to help those who needs assistance and when they need it. The volunteers are great and who have given their own shoes so that others will have!
I never question where my donations are going as they keep everyone aware of their clients needs. I have recommended them in the Facebook groups I have joined. The only thing I say about them that I wish they could change is the space they have available. They could double their space so it does not limits their effectiveness. Clothed by Faithis a group who I highly recommend!

I have been volunteering with Clothed By Faith since the Tax day flooding, it is a fantastic organization, the hearing the stories that our clients tell and the difference that the bag of clothing we provide to them, makes in their lives is heart warming.
Being new to Texas I was looking for a way to settle into my new life, and the ladies that run and volunteer at clothed by faith are quite simply amazing, they have certainly made me feel at home.
