Community Resources

There are a number of organizations and agencies that are available to support families in need. The counseling department compiled a list of resources, which can be found at the link below.

Cambridge Closet

The Cambridge Closet launched in November 2022 and serves as a resource for students to access clothing, toiletries and other items they may need.

The closet’s goal is to support our students and families in accessing items they may need. The closet is equipped with lightly-used or new clothing, sneakers, boots, winter gear, etc. along with backpacks, hygiene kits and more. It is available daily for teachers and staff to access should a student need arise during the school day.

The closet is located in room 19 near the Health Office and overseen by Aydin O’Hearn and Brooklynn Candee. If you have any questions, please email cambridgecloset@cambridgecsd.org.
