The Village is a Foster Care Closet that serves foster youth and foster families in the 17 counties of southeast Idaho. Foster families, social workers, and CASA workers can bring a foster child into the store to choose items they need at no cost. (Vouchers are not necessary.) We have items for newborns up to teenagers. The Village carries clothing, socks, underwear, backpacks, school supplies, personal hygiene items, diapers and wipes, toys, books, suitcases, etc. We also try to keep (new) cribs, strollers, bicycles and such items in stock. Follow us on Facebook to keep up to date on what we currently have in the stock.
The Village accepts new and gently used items. We ask that clothing be clean and free of stains or damage. We accept clothing (socks & underwear must be new), shoes, toys, books, baby items, bicycles, beds (cribs & car seats must be new), gift cards, cash donations, etc.
The Village is operated by the Idaho Foster & Adoptive Parent Association. We are run 100% by volunteers. If you would like to volunteer, you can contact us or just walk in during business hours. We are also happy to have groups or businesses come in and volunteer their time. Contact us through Facebook or text 208-569-6298.
Independent Living Kits
The Village also keeps Independent Living Kits in stock. These kits are filled with items a youth moving out on their own for the first time will need. (Shower curtain, dishes, towels, sheets, pans, linens, etc.) If you have a foster youth aging out and moving out on their own, please contact us to pick up a kit for them.
