Our signature service, the clothing boutique is available to children in foster care and we offer a variety of outfits, pajamas, undergarments, coats, socks and shoes and other items to children, from infants to teenagers, throughout the year.
In addition to clothing items, the boutique also offers personal care items, blankets, books, toys, baby equipment, sporting goods, and numerous other items-all of the things a young person needs to have the best childhood possible!
Children can come for a shopping visit twice a year during spring/summer and fall/winter seasonal changes. We also offer shopping for back to school and for when a child’s size changes. All items are distributed through shopping visits where displaced children and their foster parent/kinship care parent work with a volunteer assistant to select items.
