Wish List

Along with financial and volunteer support, Family & Children’s Place has ongoing material needs that help facilitate our work with children and families.

These can range from toys and blankets that give comfort to child victims of sexual abuse who are being seen at our Kosair Charities Child Advocacy Center to tools that help facilitate and document details about each case. It might be food and snacks for children who may not have been fed or need juice after a blood draw, or mobile technology to allow staff to work with children and families at school or in their homes, where they are most comfortable.

We call these wish lists. Providing wish list items is a great way to support Family & Children’s Place and help children and families.

Family & Children’s Place can always use the following items:

The Kosair Charities Advocacy Center always needs snacks and drinks (juice boxes, etc.) for children who get hungry while at the facility. These young people are frequently here for two to three hours and many have not been fed before arriving.

Books

Art supplies: Crayons, markers, construction paper, craft supplies, glue sticks, etc.

School Supplies: Pencils, pens, wide-ruled notebooks, folders, etc.

Toys: Infant through preschool.

Blankets and stuffed animals

Discomfort and anxiety often accompany medical examinations and forensic interviews, so the folks at the Kosair Charities Advocacy Center offer children a blanket to help brighten their day. New and gently used items can be donated.
