Specialized care package for a child entering foster care

Posted May 29, 2018
Within 24 hours of a new foster placement, the "Foster the Family" Community Foster Response delivers practical necessities and comforting support to the doorstep of a foster family. Each family will be paired with a trained staff member and receive a meal, information about resources and support, a note of encouragement and contact information of a mentor foster parent as well as clothing, hygiene items, supplies, and comfort items for the child.

Special Foster Child is 11 months old and lives in Camden, NJ

A mother opens the door to her new son or daughter. Her eyes fall on her new child--a stranger--wearing ill-fitting clothes, no coat, and holding a bag with a few worn t-shirts. Both mother and child are confused and overwhelmed. The daunting task of making this little one feel safe, of integrating another person into the family, is the first priority. But other things feel more pressing. The baby needs formula. The toddler needs a teddy like the one forgotten at home. The little boy needs shoes that fit. The sweet girl needs a brush to start pulling through her matted hair. The teenager needs a backpack for the first day back to school. The whole family needs to be fed. The mother needs just a few words of encouragement and a number to call for advice.
