Our services are free of charge and open to the Foster Care Community in Oregon which may include:

DHS State Certified Foster Parents, Relative Care Givers, Pre-Adoptive and Adoptive placement homes through DHS, and some children who have a DHS-Child Welfare open case who remain at home under a safety plan. 

We would like to assist you in providing some basic items for the children in your care.  We can help with clothing, shoes, coats, underwear, socks, new car seats, strollers, toys, some baby furniture and baby gear.  Other items will be available when donated.
