AFC, an outreach of the Council of Churches of the Ozarks, provides self-esteem items to over 850 children in foster care each year. Providing new clothes, vouchers for new shoes and haircuts, along with extra-curricular expenses help boost the self-esteem and build self-confidence in a child who struggles to find stability. AFC has multiple programs to provide assistance to this population of children, at no cost to them.
The Clothes Closet gives foster children the opportunity twice a year to shop for brand new clothing.
The Prom Closet provides gently used evening gowns and evening wear for high school students who want to attend school dances.
Foster Support assists foster children and families with needs outside of clothing. This could include sports equipment for a school sports team, sponsorships for church camp, toys for special needs, medical needs that are not covered by Medicaid, special types of therapy and so much more.
