ABOUT THE MISSION:
Vault is currently a developing community for foster families in the Hill Country area. We desire to help ease the burden by collecting necessities for families receiving placements with short notice. As we began to collect, sort and distribute items our passion grew for the greater needs that these families may encounter. When we stepped in and took a closer look, we saw people excited to change the life of a child, even if just for a short time. We cannot all be foster parents, but we can all be a part of ending the orphan crisis in some way.
We desire to continue our original vision of providing physical needs to families by donating clothing items and necessities like cribs and car seats. The donated items will never be sold for profit, but rather when the child no longer needs them, they will be returned to the Vault and passed on to a new family.
It has been beautiful to see our community step up to the plate and provide for a parent after only moments of Vault posting their needs via social media. We want to partner with these families by providing resources for parenting classes, support, trained babysitters and encouragement. We hope to empower and equip people as they step boldly into the foster care world and speak for those who cannot speak for themselves.
