Fill a Tangible Need

Help support our local agencies, foster parents, and foster children with tangible needs.

Children often come in to foster care with nothing but the clothes on their backs. Emergency car kits provide caseworkers and police officers items to care for children being transitioned in to state custody until they can access additional resources.

“What I would have given for a diaper and a binky, one night when I had a little one tired, wet, and hungry for over two hours screaming while I waited for a caseworker.” –Local Sheriff

What items should I include?
diaper, wipes, pacifier, bottle, sippy cup, water, applesauce, spoon, crackers, fruit/yogurt pouch, teething biscuit, crayons, play-doh, bubbles

Since TFI is funded 100% by generous donation we are working on an Amazon wishlist to help our mission! Check back soon for the link.

Other Tangible Needs

  • Write a word of encouragement to a case worker, parent, or child
  • Write birthday cards for this month’s kids
