Clothing Voucher Program

Helping with the basics during your time of need.

The Rescue Mission, in following Christ’s example to serve others and desiring to show his love to all people, is pleased to offer clothing vouchers to those in need. Applications for clothing vouchers for the community are processed in the main building lobby of the Rescue Mission by the Reception Team on Saturdays from 9am – 4pm. Applicants are required to bring verification of eligibility with them which include any of the following:

  • SSD/SSI
  • Medicaid
  • Food Stamps
  • WIC
  • TANF
  • Currently reside in a local Shelter (VOH Form)
  • Prison Release papers
  • Applicants who receive unemployment may qualify if their unemployment benefits total less than 200% poverty level

Applicants must also present a valid photo ID (if over 18) and Social Security Card for each household member including children. Each person residing in the home over the age of 18 must apply for their own card. If the ID has been stolen, a police or fire report dated no more than 90 days prior is acceptable. The Reception Team will verify eligibility and provide a photo ID voucher card for each household member on the application. Each person must be present to have their pictures taken; however, they do not have to be present for their voucher card to be honored if they are under the age of 18, homebound, or disabled (proof of guardianship/disability required).

Voucher cards are honored at the at the 4th Street Thrift Store Monday through Thursday and Saturdays from 10am – 5pm; on Fridays from 10am to 3:45pm.

Vouchers are valued as follows:

  • Adult vouchers – $20
  • Children (all ages) - $20

$20 is automatically added to each voucher card every 120 days; however after one year the voucher must be renewed with verification of need provided.

Furniture vouchers are provided to the Mission’s guests who exit shelter and move to sustainable permanent housing. Furniture vouchers are not available to the community.

If you or someone you know qualifies for social services and help is needed with clothing, please visit the Rescue Mission lobby in the main building on Saturdays between 9am – 4pm to apply for a Clothing Voucher card. For more information on the Clothing Voucher Program, call 540.343.7227.
