Resource Center

When children are removed from their homes and placed in foster care, they often leave all of their belongings. For many foster families, the Citizens Caring for Children Resource Center is the first stop they make after a child has been placed in their care.

The Resource Center provides NEW clothing four times a year and during the Back to School event, completely free of charge.

During each visit, children receive:

  • Two pairs of pants
  • Two shirts
  • Three pairs of socks
  • Three pairs of underwear
  • One pair of shoes
  • One pair of pajamas
  • Two books
  • One Coat (in winter season)
 

 

It's in the Bag

"It's in the Bag" provides each child who visits the Resource Center with a duffel bag filled with basic toiletry items that are essential for health, happiness and confidence.

Each child receives a duffel bag filled with the following items upon their initial visit and refill upon each visit thereafter:

  • Duffel Bag
  • Shampoo
  • Conditioner
  • Soap
  • Deodorant
  • Toothpaste
  • Dental Floss
  • Brush or Comb
  • Towel
  • Wash Cloth
