College Dorm Kits
Foster, at-risk, and vulnerable youth often start their freshman year with very little support.

Imagine being a foster youth, on college move-in day, watching other students' parents carry in bags of new items for their dorm rooms. Foster youth don't have parents to be there for them, emotionally or financially. What is supposed to be an exciting day can turn into a tough one. 

Children's Fund is going to be there for them, supporting them and reminding them that we are proud of their educational progress.  That's why we're collecting basic dorm room items to get them started. 


Thank you for your desire to help this segment of students set up a new, comfortable, and uplifting college dorm room.  Together, we'll get them off to a great start!
