Jose's Closet ​



run by Foster/Adoptive Families

Most often a foster child is placed in a home with only the clothes on their backs. These most vulnerable children (ages 0 to 18) are going through an always traumatic transition. We are called to serve these often very frightened and hurting 'young persons' by providing a place where foster and adoptive and kinship families can obtain most items their 'displaced' child needs to heal and thrive in their new family.

THE NEED... Arizona has over 20,000 kids in foster care at this time. Thankfully, we have many families (though not enough!) who are either getting certified for the first time or willing to take in one more child

HOW WE SERVE - Our resource center in Apache Junction supplies foster, adoptive and kinship families with clothes (all ages), strollers, school back backs, toys, formula, diapers and much more.
