A BOUTIQUE FOR AT-RISK TEENAGE GIRLS

One More Child’s Loft 181 is a clothing boutique for teenage girls ages 13-18, with a special focus on supporting foster care youth and trafficking survivors. Each visitor selects from a curated collection of new and gently-used clothing – all provided free of charge!

Beyond style, Loft 181 offers a transformational experience where every guest can find a loving haven of acceptance and newfound hope.

How it started

Founded in 2006, Loft 181 took its name from the number of girls in the Hillsborough County foster care system at the time. Initially situated in a space called the “Loft” at Idlewild Church, the shop has since blossomed into a beautiful standalone boutique. It now serves as an extension of One More Child, a nonprofit organization dedicated to serving vulnerable children and families both nationally and globally.
