School Supplies Drive

To help us provide the children with the necessary supplies for this upcoming school year, we are asking for donations of new school supplies. Read More for details on our list of items and how you can help make a difference for these children. 

Support Needed 

Foster children and parents need our support more than ever. The foster care system has been especially wracked with confusion and dread by the coronavirus crisis. Here’s a look at several ways that the child system is buckling under the weight.

Kids Gear Partnership

Lakeshore Foster Families & Friends has made the unfortunate decision to stop accepting used donations. We have a wonderful partnership with Kids Gear in Manitowoc. They will accept gently used kids items on our behalf for a credit to our organization.

Sponsorship Available

There is still time to be a sponsor for this amazing event. Remember all proceeds go to support foster and kinship children and families. We value our sponsors and have a long list of benefits to recognize each one of them. Contact us today!

COVID-19 Relief

Lakeshore Foster Families and Friends has started a food relief project to distribute groceries and needed supplies to families during the coronavirus pandemic with help from Grow It Forward, The Smiling Moose, and The West Foundation.
