Our Services

Providing Welcome 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.  Welcome Bags are delivered year round to local children.    This is our first attempt to connect with and welcome a child into our community. 

 We need individuals, neighborhoods, churches, groups, schools, troops, 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.
