Why We Exist

Joseph’s Coat seeks to model God’s love by connecting people, sharing resources, strengthening families and building stronger community. We do this by offering stepping stones of free clothing, furniture and household items to families at the margins.

We serve our neighbor in-need and our community as a whole. We welcome our neighbors that share our common cause to serve alongside us. We are better together as lives are transformed and our community becomes stronger.

Our Story

Joseph’s Coat clothing ministry was born out of the needs of homeless families hosted through the Inter-Faith Hospitality Network (IHN). The first ministry was housed in a two-car garage. It was complete with clothing racks, shelving and display tables. Clothing was offered to IHN hosted families. Joseph’s Coat’s expanded to offer furniture and household goods to help families transitioning from homelessness to their own home.

We began through collaboration between volunteers from area churches including, Messiah Lutheran, St. Pius X Catholic, and Parkview Presbyterian, St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Parish, & Peace United Methodist. Today, Messiah Lutheran, St. Pius X Catholic, and Parkview Presbyterian, Reynoldsburg United Methodist, Eastpointe Christian, Peace Lutheran, St. Matthews Catholic, Epiphany Lutheran, and Holy Spirit Catholic are now partners along with schools, businesses, social service organizations and individuals from our community. We serve our neighbors, families in Central Ohio struggling through a difficult season.
