Thank you Danyelle for all you do! It is so comforting to know that the Garage of Hope is available for items my baby as well as so many others may need.
Garage hope is just that. It’s hope. It gives hope to us foster parents so that we can help children. That we are willing to take the late night phone call because we know that there’s going to be help for us. Danyelle and the other Garage of Hope team members provide not just essentials for children in care but also guidance, love and support for the foster parents. They have given me so much hope and faith that I can open my heart and home to more kids in need. Thank you for all the help and support that you’ve given me and my family.
It is most common when a new foster child comes to your house that there is literally nothing in their hands. On occasion the kids will show up with a garbage bag of mismatched and dirty clothes but not anything presentable. As a Pasco foster parent, it is a relief that the Garage of Hope has my back. If I have a new kiddo show up, often I don’t even reach out or hit a store before Danyelle lets me know she has some shorts for my new kiddo waiting for me. Or when I picked up a newborn a month ago and only a couple of people knew I was even getting a new kiddo and Danyelle called me while I was still at the hospital and told me I could pick up some newborn diapers on my way home that she had grabbed me. As a foster parent the need these kids have is right in our faces and the Garage of Hope is always actively helping these kids.
My name is Jen and I want to let you know how amazing Danyelle, Sarah, and the Garage of Hope are. We are currently re-licensing to become foster parents. I contacted Garage of Hope to ask if there was a crib available for our home and within 5 minutes of my request Danyelle and Sarah had one for me. In addition to the crib, Sarah had bags of clothes, blankets, a car seat and toys waiting for me when I picked up the crib. Because of generous donations our family has been abundantly blessed by Garage of Hope. Please consider sharing your infant, toddler, and children’s goods with Garage of Hope so that they can share with foster parents who are providing for these precious ones. It makes a difference – a huge difference! And if you are a foster parent in need of help preparing or providing for your foster children, Garage of Hope should be your first stop! Thank you ladies for your generous efforts on behalf of the foster children and their foster parents in our area. I am grateful!
