List of Foster Care Closets in the USA

 

 

Generous organizations and people create Foster Care Closets for foster parents. They consist of donated items meant to offset the costs of new clothing and other necessary belongings for children in care. Many of them offer used clothing, toys, furniture and baby accessories. Please note: the Foster Coalition does not run foster care closets. We have created this list as a service to the foster care community. [Page in progress. Updated October 30, 2019]
