The LifeBridge Community Closet is a space where families can access clothing, personal care items and linens that help aid their effort to move forward in their lives. It reopened in March after needed renovations led by the strong desire of CEO Alan Mathis to make it an uplifting and empowering space for LifeBridge clients. We will not accept referrals from other community organizations at this time.
