Support Us

Our goal is to make your life easier, foster parents. We know first hand how overwhelming those first days with a new placement can be (read about how we started here). We have Resource Centers in Round Rock and Dripping Springs that are stocked with basic necessities for children entering your care (at no charge to you). Our hope is that we can provide you with clothes, beds, cribs, car seats, strollers, Pack n Plays, bassinets, and other necessities that can be difficult and costly to gather with short notice.

Our Welcome Packs are designed for children coming into care as emergency placements. They are custom packed for each child and generally contain about 7 outfits, some basic toiletries, new socks, new underpants/diapers, books, and a cuddly toy.

After submitting the form below, we will be in touch within 24 hours to set up a time to get you the items that we are able to provide. You will have the option to come shop at our nearest location (free of charge) or have one of our volunteers deliver items to your home within our coverage area. We do our best to honor all requests from licensed foster families bringing in emergency placements, kinship families, case workers, CASA, and reunifying biological families working with CPS.

Our current service area includes Hays County, Travis County, and Williamson County. We are only able to deliver to families welcoming emergency placements at this time. We can make exceptions for those willing to travel to our locations.
