“Kids come into care with very little. The importance of the Angel Room is that the items we give out they can keep. The clothing voucher from CPS goes really fast when most kids do not have anything.”
Kristina Wyatt, LCPAA, Foster Care Supervisor
Did you know Arms Wide Adoption Services has an Angel Room? It’s an incredible resource room utilized by foster families when children come into care in emergency situations and need basic necessities to get them through their first few days in foster care. Currently, our stock is low for a few items, and we could use your help in replenishing our shelves!
- Diapers: Sizes 3 and 4
- Pull-Ups: Sizes 2T, 3T, 4T, and 5T
“Having diapers and wipes on hand really help families when they receive an emergency placement. Their Foster Care Coordinator can bring a package of diapers and wipes to them right away so they have time to settle in and figure out what all they need.”
Arianne Riebel, LMSW, LCPAA, Director of Adoption and Foster Care Services
