Clothing & Household Items:

To shop in our clothing store and request household items, you must complete a membership application. See the download below. Bring the membership application with you during your first appointment. Identification is required for all household members listed on the application. A photo I.D. is required for each adult and a birth certificate or social security card for each child listed. Bring all to your first appointment.

Joseph's Coat is an "appointments only" ministry. Clothing appointments can be made by dialing directly 614-852-4858.

Dial 614-852-4858 to request an appointment Monday between 3 pm - 7 pm or Thursday between 3 pm 7 pm. Pronounce your name and spell it clearly, if believed necessary. Requests received by phone only during these times will be responded to with an appointment, normally scheduled 48 hours in advance.

It is also possible to schedule an appointment by emailing: info@josephs-coat.org at any time.

To receive Household Goods, you must be registered as a client and complete a request form for household goods during your on-site visit.

Do not come to Joseph's Coat without a confirmed appointment. Walk-ins are no longer accepted.

 

EFFECTIVE MAY 16, 2023, YOU WILL ONLY BE ALLOWED TO SHOP EVERY OTHER MONTH. THIS IS DUE TO THE LARGE NUMBER OF CLIENT REQUESTS WE HAVE.

You are required to be a current client prior to your first shopping visit.  You will have to bring ID for everyone in your household under the age of 18 who is on your account. 

Anyone over the age of 18 must have their own account prior to their first shopping visit.  You will have to bring your ID for your first shopping visit for you, your spouse, and your children.

Please understand we are trying to accomplish this without appointments currently.  We appreciate your understanding, thank you for working with us.  Only four to possibly five people will be allowed in at a time. Remember we are volunteers, we want to help you.

DO NOT ARRIVE early as no one will be allowed in the building before our hours of operation which are Wednesday and Saturday 9 AM to 1PM and Tuesday 3 PM to 7 PM.   No public restroom.  We are only allowed a certain number of people in the building at a time.  It will take 5 minutes to check in and 5 to 8 minutes to check out so you will only have 15 minutes to shop. We suggest you make a list of the items you need prior to entering.  You are only allowed 30 minutes in the building, with no exceptions, others are waiting for their chance to come in.

 

Remember:  Please wear a mask.  No children are allowed in the building at any time, for safety reasons. You are only allowed 30 minutes in the building, with no exceptions, others are waiting for their chance to come in. 

No large handbags, totes, or backpacks are allowed in the shopping area.

No public restroom.

Furniture

Furniture now has Beds, dresser, and chest of drawers only.  Due to the recent move, we no longer have the space required to have all the furniture we had in the past.  We pray that in the future we will be able to have more furniture than we currently have.  Thank you for your understanding.  When calling about beds call 614-582-4575 after the case manager has submitted the request form from the case manager’s email address only.  They will need a couple of days to enter the client data into our system.  Once this has been entered someone will call to let you know to call us for an appointment.  It is your responsibility to set the appointment and to arrive at the scheduled date and time with the proper size vehicle to transport your bed or beds to your home.

A case manager or your church leader must complete and return the Membership Application for you.  When asking for a bed or beds for a family, we will need ID for all family members (you must have legal custody of children).  We do have limits and guidelines for the number of family members on the form.  If you choose not to call and not show up for your scheduled appointment, that is your choice do not expect us to try to reschedule quickly. Lack of respect is not ignored, a second no call and not showing up is automatic disqualified.

A Joseph’s Coat Membership is required to receive program resources.  Please complete the Application and provide a photo ID for all adult household members and identification for all children. Any changes to family size, home address, or phone number that occur after the completion of the Membership application must be provided to a Joseph’s Coat team member.
