Foster Kids Charity Inc. is a 501c(3), non profit charitable organization dedicated to help serve the needs of children who have been removed from their homes because of abuse and neglect.
Every year in America, almost 300,000 children enter foster care after being rescued from terrible home circumstances of abuse, neglect, or outright abandonment. Most enter care with nothing of their own.
Foster Kids Charity mission is to make sure that every child in the Texas foster care system has their basic clothing and personal hygiene needs met. This is accomplished by providing abused and foster children in the DFW area with emergency care bags filled with these basic items.
Since inception, Foster Kids Charity has served over 15,000 foster children. We are proud to be in services of these children but ask for your support to provide more help to those we need it most.
Coming August 8, 2013 - Foster Kids Charity Group Home
Please help Foster Kids Charity sponsor a group home of 12 children (foster teens and their siblings). Providing a “Home style” shelter in a group setting helps foster teen/children have the family support they are lacking & empower and provide them with life skills toward a righter future.
Please see our Foster Group Home wish list (projects and in-kind).

Some of Texas foster children will no longer enter the system with trash bags full of belongings thanks to Foster Kids Charity.
Dallas County resident, Michelle Armour, is collecting clothing, toys & non perishable food for her new Foster Kids Charity, so that children will have something decent to carry their possessions when moving into foster care.
On June 22, 2008, a Plano traffic wreck killed Geoff Hart; his wife, Christy; their 12-year-old daughter, Rebekah; and their two foster children, Kevinnesha Palmer, 6, and Raven Lucas, 5. Michelle witnessed the accident and was impacted by it. She started to learn more about the foster care system in Texas and now 3 years later she has learned that the very things most of us never take the time to notice – could mean the world to thousands of children who enter the foster system.
Michelle founded Foster Kids Charity, a nonprofit organization who delivers care bags to foster children & needy children (homeless or children who are a victim of abuse & neglect) in Texas. Her mission is to also promote fostering children and help reduce the number of children who stay in the foster care system for so long.
Michelle has been collecting toys; nutritious snacks/food for children, clothing & other items every chance she gets.
Michelle’s personal mission is making sure the children know it’s not where you came from, but how you carry yourself once you leave.”It’s an opportunity for that child to know their self worth and an opportunity for that child to know that someone else cares and appreciates them,” says Michelle.
