Our Organization

Mission Statement

Katelynn’s Closet, established in 2009, is a 501c3 non-profit that provides needy children on Cape Cod and the Islands, ages 4-18, with clothing, footwear, and basics in order to help them maintain their dignity and foster self-esteem.

The Importance of our Logo


Our logo, an infinity symbol, is to honor the homeless four year old girl named Infiniti, who spent her entire life on the streets of Hyannis. This little girl, who has long since been adopted and lives off-Cape, was the reason Katelynn’ Closet got its start. When her situation came to the attention of two local sisters, Beth Davis and Susan Johnson, an idea to help local children in need formed. When Ann Bearse joined them, the three, guided by friend, Jeffrey Bilezikian, began Katelynn’s Closet.
