Our October Jeans BeCause recipient is the Foster & Adoptive Care Coalition. The Foster & Adoptive Care Coalition strives to create permanency in every foster child’s life by recruiting and supporting foster and adoptive families in the St. Louis metropolitan community. This is a non-profit organization founded in 1989. They help connect all other resources to help foster families find a permanent home and encourage adoptive families. They provide 24/7 free Crisis Intervention services for pre- and post-adoptive/guardianship families in St. Louis City, St. Louis County, and St. Charles County. REFRESH is a Fashion Forward Resale Boutique with great clothes and accessories for everyone, from designer items to vintage finds.
You can make a foster child’s birthday wishes come true by becoming a Birthday Buddy! As a Birthday Buddy, you donate presents to a foster child who has been identified as likely to receive very few or no gifts for his/her birthday.
