Foster Village Peoria bridges the gap in resources and supports for youth and caregivers affected by the foster care system. 

Foster parents often feel tired and alone. Most families foster for less than a year, citing burnout and lack of support as the reason they stop. At the same time, 85 percent of people who are not foster parents say they care about vulnerable children and want to help.

Our Resource Closet provides basic needs to families in the Tri-County Area. When a child arrives in a foster home, they often arrive with just the clothes on their back. Likewise, when a child is reunified with their parent, they have often. Outgrown what they had. At Foster Village Peoria, our resource closet equips families and children with clothing, new beds and infant gear, toiletries and other necessities – completely free.   Learn more here
