Thank you for your interest in helping Arms Wide Adoption Services by providing items on our wish list.
Arms Wide Adoption Services has an incredible foster care resource room called the Angel Room. The Angel Room is used by foster families as a resource when children come into care in emergency situations and need basic necessities to get them through their first few days in foster care. Many foster children come into care late at night after being removed from their homes by CPS and often have nothing but the clothes on their backs. The Angel Room ensures that these children have the essentials during their first few days in their new foster home.
