What We Do
The Foster Pantry’s mission is to ease the transitions of children in foster care by cultivating community support and equipping families and children with essential needs and resources. Foster Pantry provides tangible items and resources to foster, kinship, and biological families that are currently caring for a child that has an open case with the local Department of Social Services in New Hanover, Pender, and Brunswick.
- In 2021 we have fulfilled over 200 requests from caregivers for essential needs of clothing, shoes, toys etc.
- Our service area currently has over 400 children in foster care and about 125 active foster parents.
- In 2022, we look forward to growing our current programs, expanding our service areas and launching NEW exciting programs for our local foster youth!
