Fort Worth Community Collaborative (FWCC) is a 501(c)(3) organization that was established in 2022 to act as a collaborative partner between families, underserved populations, and their access to clothing. Our goal is to create the first true, community based clothing closet in Fort Worth. The existing clothing closets in the area are sponsored by church ministries, public schools, or offered to adoptive families only. These organizations do wonderful work, but they also exclude a large portion of the population.
FWCC partners with other nonprofits or businesses to host “pop-up” shopping events and mutual aid. Our community closet is funded by donations and there is never a cost for community members to come and shop. These shopping events offer a direct path to resources where there are no waiting lists and no forms to fill out. We hope to drive foot traffic and spread awareness about other resources offered (meal pantries, free little libraries, discounted classes, etc.) by our nonprofit host.
