Dane County’s only clothing bank for foster,

adoptive and kinship care children.

Our families often operate on the financial margins. Providing clothes allows them to better focus on loving the kiddos. Kinship is a home where a child is being cared for by a relative (i.e., grandma) and are often not part of the social services network.


During the Safer-at-Home order, Luke's Closet has modified operations:

  • Kiddos can still receive clothes via delivery. Submit your clothing requests through the Online Form.

  • We are not able to host personal shopping appointments at this time.

  • Please hold your clothing donations until the Safer-at-Home order is lifted. 

  • If you'd like to support Luke's Closet, donate online or shop our Amazon Wish List.  


There are three ways children can receive clothes. All items are free. Children may receive clothes seasonally or as needed.


  • Call Luke's Closet -- 608-234-0146 -- to arrange for a personal shopping appointment to select clothes.

"Luke’s Closet is one of my favorite resources in Dane County!...It is so important to me that children are well dressed, don’t stick out like they’re in foster care, and feel confident with their appearance. 

- Dane County Social Worker

"Our family loves the items we chose for the kids and it lessens the strain for parents who have limited resources. 

This is a wonderful organization that supports community members in a very positive, respectful way.”

- Foster/Kinship Family

“They are some of the most thoughtful and kind people that I’ve met! Clothes were in great shape and some new even. We can’t say enough about how thankful we are! God Bless!
