Claudia's Closet is dedicated to the loving memory of Claudia Jean Jones Blake, a Northwest Indiana and Chicagoland advocate and true humanitarian for all in need. Located at The Martin Luther King Center in East Chicago Indiana Claudia's Closet provides warm clothes, small household items, and children's toys for all household members in need. 

Our friendly staff welcomes guests in a boutique like environment where they select their own household and clothing items to best suit their needs. Whether it is  wardrobe items for a job, warm clothes for winter months, or school clothes for growing young boys and girls Claudia's Closet provides quality items that instill a stronger sense of self-worth and dignity.

A new feature of Claudia's Closet is our new program designed to provide emergency housing for seniors aged 55 and up who are transitioning from a nursing home, in the process of being placed in a nursing home, or who are homeless and are transitioning into housing. For more information about this program, boutique hours, or for information on how to donate please call our Hammond office at (219) 933-7111 from 11am till 3:30pm, Monday through Thursday
