Welcome To Kits of Hope
Kits of Hope Fosters Strength and Resilience One Child At A Time...
Imagine for a moment, a day in the life of a child who has just been removed from the care of their parents by strangers, they feel alone, scared, anxious and don’t understand what is going on. They have to leave home in a hurry with these strangers and often are unable to take any of their belongings with them and might have to wait for hours at the police station, DHS office etc.
On the front line of caring for these kids, seeing them in the office soon after they have been removed from their homes and they are simply in distress. It is heart breaking to watch these vulnerable kids suffer so much for something they have no control over.
Rates of children in foster care continue to increase across the country, in some cases up to 74%, and one of the most common reasons is due to parental drug use.
Kits of Hope Delivers Smiles And Hope To The Hearts Kids & Foster Parents.
Kids in Foster Care are generally alone without siblings or permanent families. Our experience has shown that those who live in foster care without being linked to forever families have a higher likelihood than youth in the general population to experience homelessness, unemployment and incarceration as adults.
Kits of Hope strives to be the bridge that helps connect children in Foster Care to our Kits of Hope Forever Family by providing the essentials that most adults and kids take for granted like school clothes and shoes and book bags as well as notebooks, pens, pencils and other school items. Toiletry items such as tooth brushes, combs, hair brushes and more.
Our goal is to support Kids in Foster Care and well and Parents of Foster Children & Foster Parents because it's an adjustment for everyone evolved.
