There are many ways to get involved with The Wardrobe: Treasure Valley. Whether you would like to donate your time, resources or money, your contribution will make a difference. We also welcome partnerships with other organizations who share our mission of helping children in foster and kinship care. Contact us to learn more about how you can get involved.
The Wardrobe: Treasure Valley serves children residing in Idaho from ages newborn up to 21 years old. The child must currently be in foster/kinship care or have recently aged out of foster care.
We primarily provide clothing items, but also, when available, hygiene or small personal items such as blankets, backpacks, and books.
The Wardrobe: Treasure Valley's Christmas Program provides foster and kinship children with Christmas gifts based on their wishlists. The children create wishlists of gifts they'd like to receive and then we seek sponsors, from the community and partnerships with other organizations, to sign up and purchase the items.
After all of the items are collected, we host a volunteer wrapping party to ensure the gifts are ready for pick-up. This is a very special program to us as many times these are the only Christmas gifts the children receive. This program ensures that all of our children have something special to open Christmas morning.

Average Full Wardrobe Cost
I'm a kinship provider for my 2 nephews and my niece. They have been through a lot and had very little. When I got them in my care, I was given access to the Wardrobe and they were awesome. Lots of different options to choose from. From comfort items to clothing. I even got the sizes entirely wrong for both orders the first go and they had no problems getting us new clothes in the correct sizes. One of them even brought them home so they could be picked up closer. I definitely appreciate that they exist.
