Cape Cod Foster Closet

  • If you know a foster, adoptive, or grandparent family, please let them know about the Cape Cod Foster Closet. Caregivers can call or text 508-514-7125 to request items. There is also a form on the website to request assistance. Requests are typically filled within 24 hours or less. *Relative caregivers do not have to be affiliated with any agency.

    Who We Are and What We Do*

    Cape Cod Foster Closet is a program of Nurturing Foster Families, Inc., a registered 501(c)(3) organization, supporting foster and relative caregiver families by providing material goods for children in care.

    The Cape Cod Foster Closet assists foster, pre-adoptive, and kinship families by providing necessary items such as clothing, shoes, toys, books, baby equipment (including formula and car seats) and furniture for all ages.

    All items are donated by our generous community and are provided free of charge to families who care for other people’s children on Cape Cod and the Islands. We work with the local DCF office as well as private agencies, all of which serve foster, pre-adoptive and relative caregiver families. We also support families who have guardianship or custody of children but are not involved with an agency.

    Our goal is to help fulfill the physical and emotional needs of foster families.
