Uniforms for Kids

Volunteers for Youth Justice is working in collaboration with Porter’s Cleaners and the District Attorney’s office to assist children who struggle to attend school due to the lack of uniforms.  Our goal is to maintain a year-round uniform closet to serve the needs of children working with our TASC truancy and FINS programs.  We understand that there is a great need for uniform assistance in our community.  If you are in need of uniform assistance, please fill out the information below.  Please note that while we would love to be able to help everyone, our ability is limited by donations received.  All requests will be considered on a case by case basis.
