Family Resource Center

The Fostering Collective is a faith-based community bringing hope to children in foster care by providing support, resources, and encouragement to foster and adoptive families.

What Is a Closet?

We help you find your path, show you the way, and equip you with the resources you’ll need to make a difference.

When you hear that a child is going to be placed in your home within a couple of hours you need to be ready. That’s why we are creating a closet that will have the essential items you need for whatever age or gender of the child.

The Collective Closet is a community closet located in Tyler stocked by area churches and individuals to help foster, kinship, and adoptive families get what they need. This closet also helps other closets in the area stay stocked up on essential items for families.

If you need something, want to donate, or would like to volunteer contact us at
