Receive Help

Father Gene's Help Center's mission is to provide dignified clothing to those in need within the Milwaukee community. Anyone is welcome to receive clothing from us, and there are no financial, zip code, or socioeconomic requirements to receive help.

We are delighted to offer two programs: client shopping, by appointment, and personally styled boxes. Client shopping appointments can be scheduled once every three months. Packaged orders can be placed every six months. 

Client Shopping *New*
 

1. Schedule

Call (414) 258-4357, ext 104 to schedule an appointment. If we are unable to answer your call directly, simply leave a message clearly stating your name and phone number. We will return your call as soon as possible, typically on a Monday, Wednesday, or Friday between the hours of 9 a.m. and noon. Appointments are scheduled Monday through Friday, at 9 am, 10 am, and 11 am.

2. Shop

On the day and time of your appointment, please arrive at Father Gene's Help Center on time. You will have 30-45 minutes to shop and can select up to 20 items per person in your family, based on the availability of donations. All clothing is provided free of charge.  Please let us know if you need to cancel or reschedule your appointment.

3. Style

Enjoy your new clothing items! We encourage you to spread the word about the client shopping experience at Father Gene's Help Center and to leave us a positive review on social media. 

 

We invite you to return to shop once every three months.

Personally Styled Boxes
 

1. Place

Call (414) 258-4357, ext 104 to place your order. Leave your name and phone number. We will return your call as soon as possible, typically on a Monday, Wednesday, or Friday between the hours of 9 a.m. and noon. Please note that it greatly speeds up the order intake process if you know your clothing sizes prior to calling.

2. Pack

Once you have placed an order, a volunteer will pack your order for you. We strive to fill orders as completely as possible based on the donations we have available. Orders are completed within one week after they are placed.

3. Pick Up

Once your order is complete, a volunteer will call you to inform you that your order is ready for pick up. You may pick up your order Monday-Friday between the hours of 9 a.m. and noon, as well as on the first Saturday of every month from 9 a.m. to noon. Please respect the time and effort of our volunteers by picking up your order within one month of completion.
