Welcome to Mae's Closet, a durable medical equipment lending bank serving the Greater New Haven area.    Mae's Closet is organized under the auspices of Interfaith Volunteer Care Givers and is designed to meet the needs of people who need medical equipment.  Our purpose is also ecological as we seek to recycle medical equipment.  Who was Mae?

We both lend and accept donations of medical equipment (such as canes, walkers, transport chairs, and shower and bathroom assistance devices). Most of our inventory is "gently used," and has been sanitized and inspected for safety; at this time, we do not accept or provide items like bedding, braces, diapers, or boots.   We welcome volunteers to join us in providing necessary equipment for those who need it.

To borrow equipment from Mae's Closet, please call us at 475-414-8333 between the hours of 9 a.m. and noon, Monday through Friday.  A volunteer will return your call promptly and arrange an appropriate pickup time. Or you can request equipment online at Mae's Closet Request Form.  Or you can email us at

The closet is located at the U-Haul Storage Facility, centrally located at 1685 Dixwell Avenue in Hamden.  When you call, we will give you specific instructions as to how to find and meet us.  PLEASE DO NOT LEAVE ANY EQUIPMENT UNATTENDED AT THE FACILITY.
