WHAT ASSISTANCE DOES FTWFC OFFER?
The Fort Worth Foster Closet offers both in-store shopping and emergency welcome bags for children and families experiencing the child welfare system. Families are welcome to shop in-store to hand pick and try on different items from our Resource Store.
We also understand that many placements can occur with short notice. Emergency welcome bags are a collection of different items and resources that will sustain the child and family for up to a week. Our On-Call Advocates are on-call 24 hours a day to help pack emergency welcome bags. Emergency bags can be picked up from our Resource Store or delivered to a location within a 25-mile radius of the closet.
