Kids’ Closet

Kids’ Closet Needs List

COBYS has one big closet for all our kids. Each foster child coming into care receives a backpack filled with clothes, toys, personal care items, a Bible and more. The Closet allows caseworkers to “shop” for each child and their unique needs. Gifts for special occasions, supplies for caseworkers’ activities with kids and car seats for visitations all have a spot in the Closet. (No used items, please).

COBYS is grateful to churches and church groups who organize a drive to help “stock the closet” with supplies for our foster care and adoption children.

The complete, current list of items is available on our Amazon Wish List located here:

This allows us to confirm need of specific items and availability of staff to receive the donation.
