Provision of necessary personal and household items
Elijah’s Closet is currently compiling a list of local businesses that are willing to offer free to low-cost services for families that have children currently in or susceptible of going in to foster care. All trades are welcome.
Through our extensive list of partners, we are able to locate items not commonly carried by Elijah’s Closet and connect families with a variety of other resources that correspond to their specific needs.
