HelpOurKids was founded to offer small goods and services that will make a difference in the lives of children in foster care in western Masschusetts. The purpose of HelpOurKids is to identify needs of the children in care beyond the basics of necessity, (food, clothing, housing), which are similar to children not in foster care, and to fulfill the requests swiftly through a collaboration of volunteers, community resources and community partners.
