We served 3,275 teens in 2019, providing them complete outfits and accessories FOR FREE!

How We Operate

Youth in need must be referred by an informed adult, someone who is familiar with the situation. Personnel representing agencies, schools, group homes and regional treatment centers, as well as foster parents and other individuals are welcome to refer a teen to Houston Threads. The referral form is on this website. We need clothing and shoe size information to ensure a successful shopping experience for each and every youth.

We are by appointment only, Tuesday - Friday 9 am - 5 pm, Select Saturdays 10 am - 2 pm. We have a small group of volunteers that provide a VIP experience for our teens.

What Kind of Donations Do We Need?

New socks, underwear, boxers, skinny jeans, jogger style pants, t-shirts, shoes, backpacks, hoodies, dresses, leggings, and Plus Size Clothing. We always need toothpaste, tooth brushes, hair brushes, combs, shampoo, conditioner, deodorant, hair gel, mascara, and body wash.
