Empowering foster and adoptive families, valuing children since 2020.

Our team at Packing Hope is devoted to providing the necessary resources, support and hope to Boone and surrounding county foster, kinship and adoptive families. We believe that no family should feel alone on their journey, and we want to make sure that they have access to the help they need. Our welcome bags, birthday bags, meals, workshops and monthly support groups are a way of letting these families know that we are here for them every step of the way.

Packing Hope is a 501 c3 non-profit. All donations are tax-deductible according to IRS regulations.

Bags at Placement

At Packing Hope, we believe every child in foster care deserves to be welcomed into a new home with honor and dignity. That’s why we provide foster families with essential items for each child’s welcome bag, including new clothing, pajamas, a blanket, hygiene items, and a stuffed animal. Additionally, we include a book, journal, or coloring book to help them transition into their new environment. We firmly believe that no child in foster care should enter a new home empty-handed.


Packing Hope Birthday Bags

Every Child Deserves to Be Celebrated!

At Packing Hope, we believe every child deserves to be celebrated on their birthday. We are thankful to work with the Boone County CASA program. Every child in our county will receive a Packing Hope birthday bag on their special day.

On their birthday they will receive a bag filled with:

Birthday supplies, cake mix, blanket, stuffed animal, book and small gift.

Packing Hope Meal Train

Taking One Thing Off Your Plate

Parenting a child from hard places can be a difficult job. At Packing Hope we want to offer resources to lighten your load, to take something off your plate, literally!

Our Packing Hope volunteers provide home cooked meals delivered to Boone County foster and adoptive families.

What is a reason to request a meal?

  • You have a new foster child

  • Your family is managing difficult behaviors

  • You are drowning with many therapies and appointments

  • It would just be nice to have one thing off your plate for a few weeks!

If you would like to request a meal for your family or a family you are working, reach out on the link above.
