What began as an opportunity for a few foster parents to share resources amongst their families has grown into a place to link those who care about the needs of foster children and those who are directly caring for them. Love Gives Foster Closet provides individuals, families, students, groups, neighbors, colleagues, churches, businesses and friends an opportunity to give and receive love in a tangible way for a very special group of people.


There are boys and girls, children and teens, who through no fault of their own, are in need of families. And there are men and women, as dads and moms, who are opening their homes and hearts to them. Home Forever, Permanency Advocates for Children, is working to RENEW Families. Love Gives Foster Closet is just one way. For more information on advocacy efforts and opportunities to impact foster children and orphans, please see


Love Gives is more than a Foster Closet. It is a way to ease transition, offer support, equip families and foster community for all of us. Start a conversation, share a need, raise awareness and see who finds a forever family because of you.
