Temporary Assistance Program (T.A.P.) for Clothing, Furniture, and Household Goods:

We now offer our clients needed goods from our Thrift Store under an “Earn-It” model. We have partnered with Klamath Works with this new system and TAP recipients will be required to give back some of their time to programs at Klamath Works in order to “earn” the needed assistance.

The time required to give back is based on the dollar value awarded to approximately equating to minimum wage. For example, if you are awarded $10 of goods, you will give back 1 hour in one of our programs at the Klamath Works facility.

Here are the instructions after you qualify to receive your needed goods through our program:

  1. After receiving your TAP form take it to Klamath Works at 1930 South Sixth Street (2 blocks west of Klamath Open Door clinic, across the parking lot from the new Gospel Mission) Wednesday between 1 and 4 or Thursday between 9 and 4 for an intake and to be assigned your “earn-it” time.

    2.  Once the give back time has been completed at Klamath Works you can go back            to the TAP room at the Gospel Mission Recovery Center Thrift Store on Fridays             from 1:00pm – 2:30pm to shop for your earned items.
