The Village is a foster care closet serving the 16 counties of Southeastern Idaho and operated by the Idaho Foster & Adoptive Parent Association. We collect essential care and comfort items for newborns up to teenagers and invite CASA workers, social workers, and foster families to bring foster children into our store to choose what they need and want free of charge.

OUR MISSION: Easing trauma, building self-esteem, and showing love to Idaho foster children.
