Keeps Boutique at The Gatehouse provides new clothing to women and children in crisis who are discovering new paths for permanent change — personally, academically and professionally. Fashionable and new clothing enable families to begin work and school with confidence and dignity.

Adjacent to The General Store, Keeps Boutique, like The Gatehouse, is an initiative of the 501(c)(3) projectHandUp. Each Gatehouse woman makes a private appointment so her shopping experience is tailored  to her needs.

c_DM9A8509Emily Cassidy  founded Keeps Boutique in 2008 at 15 years old.  With a heart for foster girls, she gathered new clothes donated from local retailers and vendors. At her small boutique in Southlake, Texas, foster girls came alone or in groups to receive a devotion and choose new clothes “for keeps.” After graduating from Baylor University, Emily is continuing Keeps’ legacy at The Gatehouse.
