About the Resource Center

When children are removed from their homes and placed in foster care, they often leave all of their belongings. For many foster families, the Citizens Caring for Children Resource Center is the first stop they make after a child has been placed in their care.

The Resource Center provides NEW clothing four times a year and during the Back to School event, completely free of charge.

During each visit, children receive:

  • Two pairs of pants
  • Two shirts
  • Five pairs of socks
  • Five pairs of underwear
  • Culturally specific hygiene kit
  • One pair of shoes
  • One pair of pajamas
  • Two books
  • One Coat (in winter season)
  • Two bras (if applicable)

Each child receives a duffle bag filled with a stuffed animal and blanket upon their initial visit to the Resource Center
