More times than not, when a youth enters into foster care they come to their foster family with just the clothes on their back.
Many situations prevent children from bringing clothes, toys, stuffed animals, blankets or any other "comfort" items to a new foster home. The Clothing Closet at Resources of Hope is vital in helping children feel loved while easing the burden of this initial impact to the foster family.
Each year over 606,000 children are in foster care in the United States.
Over 21,000 of those kids are in Indiana.*

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.
