Our Services

Providing Bags (Backpacks).  These bags are filled with new comfort and necessity items and are given to children (ages 0-18) as they are transitioned into a foster placement. Bags are delivered year round to local children and around Christimas time gifts are given out.    This is our attempt to help these children out during this very difficult time in their lives.  These children have very little when going into Foster care.  This is to show them that there is love and caring people that care for them in this community. 

 We need individuals, neighborhoods, churches, groups, schools, and businesses to partner with us to host drives to create and fill these bags. Remember all items in the welcome bags should be in NEW condition. Everyone has a given talent that can be used to make this work.
