Foster Care Love Box

empowering foster children to succeed

Many children in the foster care system have experienced extreme trauma and this has a huge impact on their self-esteem. Unfortunately, we cannot change many of the sad circumstances foster children experience and face, but we can help rewrite the story of their self-worth by providing a tangible source of comfort, love and mentorship. Having someone show up each month gives them the consistency they so desperately crave, hope, and a feeling of value and purpose.

How To Get Involved

When you sign up to do a love box for a foster family, you are committing to make a personal Love Box that covers each child in the home as well as the foster parent. You will commit to see the family once a month for a year to deliver the box. You can customize your box at will, we only ask that you hand write a love letter or word of encouragement to each child.
