Care

We provide and deliver care kits for children going into foster care to support them as they make this transition. It is our goal to let children know that they are not the trash bag of stained clothes they usually start their foster care journey with. We want them to know that there are people in their own community that care for them even though they don’t know them. We provide 7 days worth of clothing and other important essentials. Foster children can come shopping at our foster kid store on their birthday or to celebrate an adoption.
