Our goal is to make your life easier, foster parents. We know first hand how overwhelming those first days with a new placement can be. Our hope is that we can provide you with clothes, beds, cribs, car seats, strollers, Pack N Plays, bassinets, and other necessities that can be difficult and costly to gather with short notice.
Our Welcome Packs are designed for children coming into care as emergency placements. They are custom packed for each child and generally contain about a weeks worth of clothing, some basic toiletries, new socks, new underpants/diapers, books, and a cuddly toy.
After submitting the form below, we will be in touch within 24 hours to set up a time to get you the items we're able to provide. You will have the option to come shop at our nearest location (free of charge) or have one of our volunteers deliver items to your home within our coverage area. We do our best to honor all requests from licensed foster families bringing in emergency placements, kinship families, case workers, CASA, and reunifying biological families working with CPS.
We are currently able to serve foster families in the greater Houston area, but can only make deliveries within the City of Houston and Southwest/West Houston areas at this time.
Please note that some items are gently used donations from the community. We maintain high quality standards as we want the children and families who receive our donations to feel valued and deserving of nice things. However, Foster Village makes no claims, representations, or warranties (whether expressed or implied) as to the safety, reliability, durability, and performance of any of these items. Foster Village cannot accept liability whatsoever for the safety and reliability of the items we distribute.
