The Care Closet was built in the summer of 2014. University United Methodist Church, located across the street from Paschal, graciously opened their doors and allowed us to house our Care Closet so that students could have easy access to clothing, shoes, and toiletries. That summer families, community members, and partners came together to fill and store the closet with gently used clothing and shoes. We also did drives for toiletries. This closet serves not only individual students but also families. It is also a way to identify students at need and provide them with Next Step services if needed.
