Investing in foster children and foster families to unleash compassion, hope and dignity
We are thankful to be part of a church that takes the initiative to help kids who’ve experienced trauma. The time and effort put in by the adults surrounding these children gives them the safety they deserve in their church community. – Ashley & Nate Tingley
The Foster Care Ministry at Rose Drive Friends Church helps us to feel supported and loved as we care for the little ones in our home. We are grateful for a church that embraces our kids wholeheartedly! – Kaitlyn & Matthew Tingley
The Foster Closet
Foster children are often placed in new homes with very few of their own clothes and toys. The Foster Closet seeks to help foster families with donations of basic necessities and is a place where foster parents can receive appropriate clothes, toys, diapers, bedding, and more!
Current foster parents, we would love for you to come shopping! The Foster Closet is free to current foster families. On your first visit, please bring a copy or picture of your current Resource Family license. Foster families are welcome to shop the closet once a month. You will receive a certain number of “points” to shop per child in your care each visit. If you have gently used items to donate back to other families, we welcome those donations.
Foster Closet Hours:
– By appointment. Please contact us at email@example.com.
***The Foster Closet is located on the west side of the nursery building, facing the lunch tables and just north of the playground. We suggest parking in the Bastanchury parking lot.***
If you are interested in volunteering with the foster closet, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
