Clothing Voucher Program

Clothing vouchers are offered to shelter guests and individuals/families in the community that are in need.

If you or someone you know qualifies for social services and help is needed with clothing, please visit the Rescue Mission of Roanoke (in Reception) to sign up.

Applications for clothing vouchers are accepted:

  • Monday – Friday from 9:00-11:30am and 1:30-4:00pm
  • Saturday from 12:00-4:00pm.

To apply for a clothing voucher, you will need to bring:

  • Current Photo ID
  • Social Security Card for all applying (even children)
  • Verification that you are receiving either SSI/SSD, Food Stamps,
  • Medicaid (not Medicare), WIC or TANF

If you are employed, please bring a pay stub or recent bank statement to verify income and benefits.

Everyone will be issued their own card, so everyone applying for a Clothes Voucher must be present for a photo to be taken (this includes children).
