My name is Kayce Foster and I am a foster/adoptive parent and founder of Matthew's Closet. I've been involved in foster care for 5 years and the idea for Matthew's Closet came about due to my many placements coming into my home with just the clothes on their backs.
I realized having a clothes closet available for foster parents would be a great resource so the out of pocket expenses that foster families would face to outfit a new child or children wouldn't be so great. Matthew's Closet is available to provide assistance with clothing and other children's items to foster and kinship placements as they welcome children into their home that have been removed by the Department of Child and Family Services. We opened in the fall of 2013 and look forward to growing our program and helping the children and families in our area.
Matthew's Closet currently serves the Concho Valley area. Below is a map showing the general area where we operate.
GIVE - Whether you're giving clothes, toys, or money, giving is what enables us to help kids.
VOLUNTEER - We rely on volunteers to collect and deliver items to foster families.
