WHY WE EXIST
Foster children often come into care with little notice and very few belongings. It’s the foster family’s role to supply these children with basic needs, help them to feel safe and welcomed, and keep up with all of the necessary appointments and paperwork that is required within those first days after a child’s placement. They shouldn’t have to do this alone. As a community, we can help these children, foster families, kinship families, and/or biological families by creating a village of support during their time of crisis. Through generous donors, we provide families with free clothing, winter gear, school supplies, bedding, furniture, and more. Together we can make a difference!

Families & Others
“After providing foster care for years now, I’ve come to not only love The Compassion Connection but feel this would be near impossible without them. Every time I get a call for new kids, I know I can send in a message and within a day our needs for these kids are met. You are such a blessing!
“We are a foster family who has been blessed by The Compassion Connection several times. We are so grateful not just for the items they have that are needed for children in our care but also for their kindness. They always accommodate our needs and if they don’t have something, they reach out to the community to fill the need. They provide wonderful support, training and items for foster families and others in need. We can’t say enough about what a helpful and reliable resource The Compassion Connection is.”
“The Compassion Connection always does a wonderful job meeting the needs of the families that I supervise visits for. From beds to blankets to wonderful boxes full of clothes. The receivers are surprised and encouraged by the generosity of this organization. I highly recommend them!”
