Safe Haven Foster Shoppe Mission

SHFS with tagline-2.jpg Thank you everyone who has already supported us in starting this mission.  We need to keep spreading the word, and growing our support!  We can all make a difference in the lives of foster children!  Just a quick update to remind everyone of our mission! We developed a program like no other,  our bags are unique and personalized for each age and gender.   We work with individual counties family services departments as well as private organizations to hand deliver each and every bag donated.  With new laws being placed to protect children and grants approved for counties to increase staffing that means there are more kids in need than ever before.

We want no child to enter foster care empty-handed.  Please LIKE, SHARE, FOLLOW and SUPPORT our Mission!

Welcome Message from our Co-Founder and Executive Director – Anita Olson

Welcome and thank you for taking time out of your day to be a part of something much bigger than any of us can imagine.  Safe Haven Foster Shoppe was created to support a fb95img951484880783109rising gap in the foster care system.  Everyday children are being pulled out of the only home they know and brought to a stranger’s home (a foster home).  Most of those children come with NOTHING, putting the children and foster homes in a tough spot.  We at Safe Haven Foster Shoppe along with all of you can change that. You can choose to shop for bag items and assemble a bag yourself to donate, you can purchase a bag from our website or you can donate funds to help up purchase items for more bags.  You personally can supply a child with a sense of comfort they can call their own.   Regards, Anita Olson

Welcome to Safe Haven Foster Shoppe

shfs_logo As  many of you know, Safe Haven Foster Shoppe has been a project in the works for some time.  Well, today is the day we officially go live.  Although our process is not fully complete, we want to share our journey with you.  Safe Haven Foster Shoppe is a non-profit organization providing placement essentials to children in Foster care.  Please join us on our journey to bring these essentials directly into the hands of the children who need them.  As we roll out this organization, we ask for donation support to fund the start up costs associated with the formation of a new non-profit.  As well, you can expect some great opportunities to donate bags, host bag drives, volunteer your time or join our board of Directors. Please share our story, follow us on Social Media and keep in touch.  We are truly blessed by the support so far and look forward to expanding our network of supporters.
