Resource Closet

CAREGIVERS:

Ready-to-go bags are available for children who have entered foster care. Each bag contains the following: three new outfits, socks, underwear, diapers/wipes (if age appropriate), and a Bible. Bags may be picked up during business hours (via the front door) from either location in Forsyth or Hall. Sizes: Newborn to adult, both genders, choose between winter or summer clothing bag.

This valuable community resource, sponsored by the Cleveland Family, has served our foster and adoptive parents and caregivers since 2009. We have, however, made some important changes to better serve our community. As of February 1, 2018, we no longer accept USED clothing items. This change is to help ensure we have the best items available for children in foster care. A FULL LIST OF ITEMS THAT WE ACCEPT AS DONATIONS IS BELOW. Donations may be dropped off during business hours (via the front door) to either location in Forsyth or Hall.


To be accepted, tags must be on clothing items.

Supporting the Caregiver through Partnership Parenting

Part of SAFFT’S mission is to support and empower foster and adoptive parents. It takes someone special to be a caregiver and we believe that these individuals deserve to have the necessary education, support, and resources available to them to make their transition easier. That is why we strive to offer numerous program options for caregivers on their journey, so they are not alone.

Caregivers are encouraged to take advantage of what is offered through our Caregiver Support Program. That includes utilizing our facilities, such as our Family Life Center in Forsyth County, as a safe middle-ground environment that allows caregivers and birth parents to connect.

As part of our Success Model, we know that the true path to overall family healing is to support the child, the birth family, and the caregivers involved. And supporting, mentoring, and relationship-building among caregivers is a crucial part of that model. In order for the child or children to thrive, we first have to help build a healthy foundation with the caregivers by knowing that they are knowledgeable and equipped with all the necessary resources and support.
