Donating to Family Services & Child Haven

When children are removed from their homes and placed into protective custody, they have few, if any, of their personal belongings. The Department of Family Services provides a duffel bag filled with new clothing, toys and other essential items to children when they depart the Child Haven campus to live with relatives or in a foster home. Additionally, the Department provides essential items to keep at-risk families together while going through crises; to meet some of the needs of children already placed in foster care; and to meet some of the needs of families who are being reunited with their children. 

The Department does not receive funding to purchase the duffel bags and their contents, or the other items provided to families. We rely on the generosity of community partners and general public to help supply these basic necessities. New and gently used items are needed to ensure that we are able to continue to assist families and children in need. At the bottom of this page is a Wish List of items needed every day of the year.
