Fostering Hope's Compassion Closet

The Compassion Closet exists to provide Kittitas County foster parents with needed essentials in order to relieve some of the financial burden when caring for foster children.  

Some of the items available to foster families are children's clothing, cribs, toddler beds, car seats, high chairs, clothing, diapers, formula, school supplies, and more. 

For more information, to donate, or to volunteer in the closet, contact Andrea Betz, closet coordinator at 509.859.2735.
