What We Do
We provide NEW clothes for FREE to youth who are between the ages of 12 and 21 and have been referred to us. Because of the growing number of shoppers served, we ALWAYS need donations of new clothing and gift cards which allow us to shop to meet special needs.
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 Austin Threads. Please Download the Referral Form below and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org We need clothing and shoe size information to ensure a successful shopping experience for each and every youth.
Austin Threads operates by appointment only Monday-Friday, between the hours of 10am and 5pm. We offer some evening and weekend appointments.
To ensure our shoppers are treated to a VIP experience, caring volunteer “stylists” help them find their correct sizes, preferred colors and “look.” We have a small group of volunteers that provide a VIP experience for our teens.
