Episode 5 of Meet Houston Missions features Melinda Stephenson, the Executive Director of Clothed by Faith. Clothed by Faith provides new and gently used clothes via an online request portal to individuals, other missions, schools, and agencies. People submit their various clothing sizes via an online portal and volunteers gather clothes from the warehouse to fill a bag and provide one week’s worth of clothing.
Clothed by Faith was founded by Abigale Fourie in 2013. The mission began in the founder’s garage and has grown into a mission with two storehouse locations and clothing closets in schools and churches that span across the entire greater Houston area. Since that time, they have provided clothing to over 79,000 individuals in need.
