Chaos Closet creates Teen Boutique

Within the walls of The Chaos Closet is a brand-new boutique. This particular boutique is different from others in that there are no price tags involved. The Chaos Closet is proud to announce a new initiative, a Teen Boutique, aimed at meeting the needs of older youth in foster care. This boutique has its own space within the closet, away from items geared toward meeting the needs of infants and toddlers.
"It was my hope with the Teen Boutique that it felt more isolated, almost like a store within a store. This way when a teen and their foster family come in to shop they are able to go directly to age-appropriate hygiene supplies, clothing, accessories, and more and not have to shop around the baby items. We wanted it to feel as though they were shopping in a store but without the price tag." says Founder and Executive Director, DeeDee Button.
There are currently more than 60 teens in foster care in Missouri's 37th Judicial Circuit.
"By having their own designated space to shop from, we hope the older youth that we serve will be able to hold on to their dignity and self-worth through this tumultuous time in their lives."
The Chaos Closet is a nonprofit working to meet the immediate needs of children of all ages in foster care. Foster parents requesting assistance in meeting the needs of the children they're caring for can do so by submitting a form on the website at www.thechaoscloset.com
