The Issue: Children in Foster Care with Worn Clothing

Every year thousands of children enter the foster-care system as a result of abuse, neglect, or abandonment. Many of these children carry only the clothes they're wearing, with shoes that may be worn out or too small for their growing feet. Often they lack adequate resources to purchase new clothing items and may be forced to wear ill-fitting shoes for years.

The Campaign: Funding Shoes for Youth in Foster Care

If this Grassroots campaign raises $500, then West Valley Child Crisis Center can purchase new shoes for 50 youth in foster care. Swift Charities will match donations up to a $2,500 total. Each additional $10 raised—in conjunction with the matching donation—will fund a pair of shoes for another youth in foster care.

All donations will be matched up to a $2,500 total by Swift Charities.

West Valley Child Crisis Center

West Valley Child Crisis Center (WVCCC) rose from the need for shelter housing. A group of women's service organizations and the John F. Long Foundation formed opened residential homes in 1986 and 1988 for children who were victims of domestic violence or neglect. Today WVCCC helps to find foster care and adoptive homes for children who were removed from their homes by Child Protective Services. In addition, the organization's birth-parent program teaches pregnant women about their options and ability to place their children with loving families, and the community-outreach program raises awareness about child-welfare issues.
