Father Gene's Help Center strives 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.
Clients are eligible to receive help with clothing once every 90 days. They are welcome to shop or place orders for themselves, a spouse or partner, and dependents who live in their household under the age of 18. We will ask shoppers to provide the full names and dates of birth for the members of their household who will be receiving clothing.
