For children transferring out of care:
Some of our children have the opportunity to further their education, while others have been prepared for independent living on their own. If you would like to assist adolescents in this situation, here are a few ideas for items that are generally needed:

  • Bed & Bath: sheet sets, towels for bath and kitchen
  • Housewares: dishes, glasses, etc.
  • Luggage
  • Small Appliances: coffee makers, toasters, irons, etc.
