Interested in becoming a client of the Community Clothes Closet? Your first step is obtaining a referral.

Are you already a client but your account is expired? Follow the same steps!

A referral may be submitted to us from any human services organization. Although our services are not restricted by location – if you can get to us, you can shop with us – your referral must come from a Wisconsin-based organization. These human services groups range from food pantries and financial-assistance institutions to homeless shelters, medical clinics, school districts and county health departments.

Some of our common referring agencies in the Pontiac/Waterford area:

  • Micah 6

  • Center for Success


  • Lighthouse Oakland 

  • ATAP

  • Walton Charter

  • Oakside Academy

  • Waterford School District 


Employers may also refer employees to utilize our services.


Simply ask the agency that you are working with to submit a referral to us on your behalf. Our referral instructions and form can be found under the “Agency Referral” tab of this website. The agency should let you know once a referral has been sent.

Once the referral has been sent to us, you can come in for your first shopping visit! Appointments are not required.

For each visit we ask that you please bring a form of photo identification (driver’s license, state-issued ID card, passport or school ID). If a photo ID is not available just let us know at the time of check-in.

If you have any questions or need further information please don’t hesitate to give us a call at 920.731.7834 or email us at

We look forward to serving you soon!
