More times than not, when a youth enters into foster care they come to their foster family with just the clothes on their back.
There are situations when children are not allowed to bring any clothes, toys, stuffed animals, blankets or any other "comfort" items. This is just one way Resources of Hope steps into the picture to help children feel loved while helping offset this initial impact to the foster family.
Over 670,000 children were in foster care in the United States in 2019.
Over 27,000 of those kids are in Indiana.*
Foster parents, you are not alone in your foster care journey.
WHAT PEOPLE SAY
AR, Foster Parent
We received 2 kiddos with nothing but the clothes on their back. They not only helped with clothing, socks, underwear and toys, they offered to go above and beyond and got us in touch with another resource that helped us out tremendously. Thank You ROH!!!!

The foster/adoption world can often be a lonely one. It’s nice to know there’s someone in your corner, who’s always there to support you. No matter what you go to Resources for, you’re always greeted warmly, compassionately, and generously.

The kids were thrilled and put on a fashion show with all their “new” outfits. As I sat there looking through all the clothes and toys that were such a blessing to our family, I was overwhelmed with the assurance that we are not in this alone.
