Hope Chest is a nonprofit foster closet that seeks to provide clothes and goods to local foster kids while creating a community of support for foster families.
We collect new to gently used goods (clothes, toys, shoes, baby items, etc.) for kids of all ages. Foster families will be able to come shop for items they need for the foster children they bring into their home- all free of charge. We want to build a community of connection & support for foster families through this journey.
All of our volunteers have been touched by foster care in some way. We have seen the need, we have felt the need, and knew there was a continued need in our area. We started by sharing our ideas, collecting donations, and providing these goods to the foster families in our area.
We strive to meet the needs of children who are brought into foster care by minimizing the struggles the child faces in their new home and easing the financial strain experienced by foster parents. We do this by offering goods to foster families at no charge.
