About the Event
The image of a child entering foster care with a trash bag and ragged clothing is far too often the perspective carried about foster care.
It does not have to be that way!
In March 2006, foster alumni, foster and adoptive parent, Leigh Esau and spouse recognized the need for quality clothing in the foster care system. Though several placements at their home, they came to the realization that almost all of the children came to their doorstep with only the clothes they were wearing - and nothing else.
These experiences and conversations with other foster parents helped them conceptualize the Foster CARE Closet, leading them to start it out of their own basement! Beginning with simple donations from neighbors, churches, and community members, the Foster CARE Closet began offering quality clothing to foster children entering the system at no cost to them or their foster parents. The Foster CARE Closet has grown to include and support a variety of different services including the Intake Center and Hope Chest. They are now an assest to the youth, families, case workers, and more!
Join us to hear how restoring dignity to children in crisis as they enter into the foster care system is supporting ALL sectors of the teams.
RSVP to this FREE event today prepared to learn, ask, and connect!
We are looking forward to having YOU there.
Please share this with EVERYONE you know who believes in supporting professionals, youth, and families who start involvement with the foster care system.
