Little Ella's Closet was full with adorable clothes from before she was even born. She was blessed with everything a baby would ever need. From the moment she was born, lives were forever changed. Her mommy and daddy were in love like never before! Then tragically, not long after precious Ella was born, she was suddenly taken from this world at just a few months old. Many hearts throughout the Western Communities were heavy with grief. As the community came together to provide an outpouring of support for the Levins family, the founder of Ella's Closet was moved with a vision to allow the legacy of such a precious baby to continue to shine throughout the world.
With a mission to provide the families of young children with life-saving skills such as CPR, educational workshops, mentoring, and basic provisions for their infants and children, Ella's Closet opened its doors in 2015 as a ministry of the Light House Cafe located in Belle Glade, FL. Full of clothing, baby gear, toiletries, formula, diapers, and much more, the walls of Ella's Closet are stocked full of everything you could think of for infants and children through five years of age!
Want to shop Ella's Closet? Well, don't forget your "Ella Bucks"! See, Ella's Closet does not even accept good old cash. If you want to be a shopper of Ella's Closet, you have to use "Ella Bucks". To earn "Ella Bucks," you have to attend the workshops or classes held by Ella's Closet throughout the month. Held at the Light House Cafe, the mothers and families of young children within the Western Glades Communities can connect with each other while also learning life and parenting skills. Upon completion, the attendees are "paid" in Ella Bucks as a reward for attending that class or workshop. They can then choose to save their bucks for a larger ticket item, or they can go ahead and start shopping!
It is through the continued support of amazing people like you that Ella's Closet is able to fulfill its mission and continue impacting the lives of mothers and families within the Western Glades Communities. If you would like to help support the mission of Ella's Closet, we would be grateful for item donations of boys and girls gently used clothing from newborn to size 5, high chairs, diapers, formula, and the many other items needed for little ones birth to age five.

An angel wrote her name, Ella Pearl, in the book of life; then she whispered as she closed the book, "Too beautiful for earth." Grateful, many of us were blessed to be captured by her beauty in just the limited amount of time she was here on earth. Just like a pearl - unique, special, precious, and perfect, Ella's impact on this world is everlasting, and she continues to bless this world in more ways than we will ever know.
We thank you in advance for your support and helping to make Ella's Closet a continued success.
