1 | Please Read the Following Policies Before Coming to Shop:
Shoppers will be asked to provide the names and ages of foster/adopted children upon check in, as well as some information about themselves. We also require that you provide some sort of proof of foster/adoptive/kinship status. Examples would be your fostering contract (form 111A), temporary or permanent court custody papers, court adoption decree, or CHFS pay stub. Please bring your paperwork every time you shop (pictures on your phone are acceptable).
Shoppers will be given a guide when checking in.
New placements will receive up to 20 articles of clothing (any combination of shirts, pants, shorts, skirts, dresses, pajamas, onesies), shoes, underwear, etc., along with other supplies based on availability.
Non-new placements will receive up to 14 articles of clothing (any combination of shirts, pants, shorts, skirts, dresses, pajamas, onesies) shoes, and other items based on availability.
Shoppers will be allowed to shop for each child every 60 days. This will allow for seasonal changes and growth of children.
If there are other needs or extenuating circumstances, please feel free to contact us, as those will be considered on an individual basis.
