Foster Closet of Michigan
Items Needed:
New or Very Gently used Clothing (Preemie - Teenage)
New Pajamas
Diapers/Wipes
Baby/Toddler Gear
New Socks and Underwear
Toiletries/Hygiene Products

Who we are?
We are a 501c3 nonprofit taxable organization. We are operated 100% by volunteers; most of them foster families themselves. We have local branches throughout the state of Michigan.

What We Do?
Our organization provides clothing, underclothing, toys, shoes, baby equipment, and gear and in some cases furniture to children placed in the foster care system in State of Michigan. These items are new and like new items that have been donated to us. Children are often placed into foster care with no personal items and in many cases they come into care with only the clothes on their back. Our organization provides these kids with stylish new or like new clothing and personal items helping to begin the process of rebuilding their self-esteem and providing them with belongings they can call their own.

How can the Foster Closet help?
Our organization helps reduce the financial strain a new placement can place on a foster family by freeing up funds that would otherwise be used to fulfill these immediate needs. These needs are not always met immediately or in full by the State and that is where we step in. Meeting these needs allow foster parents to be able to use the funds saved to help the children adapt to their new home life in other ways. The Foster Closet is not a “One Stop” shop; it may be used as many times as the need arises.
