One less financial burden for vulnerable families
For families in crisis, it can be difficult to access the essential items all parents need to keep their children healthy, safe, and confidently prepared for school. The Wellspring Family Store provides a welcoming place for families experiencing homelessness or at risk of becoming homeless to shop for free clothing and other necessary items for children ages 0-17.
Most of our customers are referred to the store by a Wellspring staff member or a case manager with another community organization. However, at this time, families without case managers may reach out to us directly or take advantage of the Personal Shopper program implemented during the pandemic.
To make a request, please call (206) 902-4264 or email FamilyStore@wellspringfs.org.
Clothing, diapers, and other essentials
At the Family Store, we provide free, new, and gently used children’s items such as:
- Season-appropriate clothing and shoes
- Diapers, formula, and other essentials for infants
- Multicultural learning toys and books
- Baby gear and equipment
As our inventory is based on community donations, the availability of certain items may fluctuate throughout the year.
We accept new or gently used children’s clothing (from birth to 17). Other essentials, such as car seats, hygiene products, diapers, wipes, and baby formula are also greatly appreciated.
Volunteer your time
We can always use extra hands in the family store. If you are interested in volunteering, please sign up, and a staff member will reach out to you shortly.

Money is really tight right now and I'm working on my finances so saving this money is a huge help so I can provide for my child in the future. ”
Thanks to the Family Store my baby was able to have diapers and clothes as both my husband and I lost our jobs due to the pandemic. It made it difficult for us to buy everything needed for her. ”
The staff at the Family Store are so kind and willing to offer items that weren't even part of our original order. Their patience, kindness, and not rushing people out the door has been a great experience.”
