Papillion boutique provides free clothes to kids in foster care

A new nonprofit is working to ensure foster kids in the Omaha metro have access to clothing and other supplies they might need.

In June, Amber Richardson founded Foster Love, a nonprofit boutique that provides free clothing to foster children transitioning into new homes. On Saturday, January 23 the nonprofit will launch its first free clothing boutique event in downtown Papillion.

Richardson said she understands it can be difficult for kids in foster care to have access to adequate clothing. When she first became a foster parent in 2007, her now adopted son, arrived with all of his clothes and personal possessions crammed inside a single trash bag.

“I know it didn’t just happen to our son, who was later adopted to us. In the community, this is not an uncommon thing, of kids being moved from home to home with just a single black trash bag,” Richardson said.
