More than 11,000 children are currently in the foster care system in the Dallas area. They are placed with caregivers that include foster parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles who have all stepped up to bring these kids into their home to care for them. Many of these families are operating on a limited budget and find it difficult to provide items beyond basic care. Many children arrive to a home with only the clothes they are wearing. Our desire is to bless both the families and the children with items they need but also provide spiritual and emotional support.
HP Pres will be opening a Foster Care Closet in February 2021 to equip these caregivers as they care for these kids. The caregivers will have an opportunity to come and shop for items such as clothes, toys, diapers, hygiene items, and sports equipment. The Closet will be located at 1421 N. Peak Street.
We accept donations in Wight Garden Monday–Friday from 9 am–5 pm or Sunday morning.
Items Needed (new is the preference but we can accept gently used items)
You can also order a gift from Amazon and have it shipped directly to the church.
Please give HERE if you would like to make a financial contribution to our Foster Care Ministry.
We will need many volunteers as we prepare and open the closet to our families. Please sign up to learn about the upcoming volunteer opportunities as they are developed.
