Saperia Dreams Blessing Boutique allows children and caregivers to “shop” for free in our store. The Blessing Boutique reaches out to all children who are wards of the state of Georgia and provides free clothing and necessary items for these children who are placed in foster homes.
Each child will be provided with 5 to 7 seasonal outfits, a pair of shoes, new socks and undergarments, two pajamas, hygiene products, and books. We will provide prom and graduation clothing and accessories for both girls and boys for that special time of the year. Depending on inventory, we will also offer high chairs, beds, video games, and Bibles.
For many foster children, this case is all too real and sad for both foster parents and foster children. With the many cuts in the budget for child welfare agencies across the United States, foster parents receive fewer funds from these agencies, making it more challenging to provide for the foster children that come in and out of their homes. To make matters worse, the low economy has also left many foster parents with less money as they strive to provide such necessities as clothing for growing children. As a result, foster parents across the country struggle to provide for the children under their care.
Sapeia Dreams Blessings Boutique also offers foster children who turn 18 years of age who qualifies for Independent Living Programs, with items such as beds, sofas, televisions, dressers, kitchen supplies, and bathroom items.
Saperia Dreams Foster Care Closet depends upon donations from our community. They are funded mainly through private and business donors, local grants, and supporting through private foundations. The Foster Closet also depends upon donations from their community and hosts two fundraisers per year. DFC also receives funding for the storefront from a local Community-Based Care Agency. Both organizations also rely on volunteers, whether through one of their programs or by merely answering the phone and running their stores.
Without donations and volunteers, we wouldn’t be a Blessing.
