When a child comes into foster care in DFW it usually is an emergency removal, which means the foster parent or kinship caregiver has mere minutes to prepare their home and life for a child. Our Welcome Pack program exists to meet those early, tangible needs. Foster Village is in need of community partners with a desire to create a better experience for our community's most vulnerable children. Some ways to 'Join the Village':
- Become a monthly supporter (you choose the amount and duration)
- Give a one time monetary gift that will go toward providing basic necessities for children entering foster care as emergency placements.
Some examples of how donation dollars are spent for children entering foster care...
$25: new shoes
$100: new bed
$200: items to fill a Welcome Pack
$300: Bunkbed set to keep siblings together
$500+: Establishing a physical Resource Center
- Volunteer your time and talents to enrich the lives of foster youth.
