Most children come to their foster homes and Safe Families Host Homes with very few possessions. Many of the biological parents we serve might not be able to afford needed resources for their children.
DC127’s Resource Board is where our foster families and Safe Families volunteers post needs for the children and families they serve. Whether you have gently used goods, or would like to purchase goods on your own, filling a need for a family shows them they have the support and care of the community!Visit DC127's Resource App
**DC127 VOLUNTEERS AND FAMILIES ARE NOT ALLOWED TO REQUEST CASH ASSISTANCE THROUGH THE RESOURCE BOARD. IF A CASH REQUEST IS POSTED, PLEASE IGNORE AND A MODERATOR WILL REMOVE THE REQUEST SHORTLY**
**DC127’s Resource Board does not currently work in Safari browsers**

Resource Board Etiquette
For filling needs:
- Please only accept needs you can actually fill. These are real needs from our families and we want to ensure they get the help they need. If you accept a need and can’t fill it, please click “RETURN” to send the need back.
- Please keep information and addresses from the board and of the families you meet confidential.
For posting needs:
- Requesting cash assistance is not allowed on the Resource App. Gift cards in small amounts for groceries and clothes are welcomed, but any request for cash will be deleted and the poster may be blocked.
- We suggest that in the address field, you use a local landmark and either share your address after someone contacts you, or meet them at the landmark. You could also contact your church about using their office as a drop off location.
- This board has the potential to fill up quickly, so please only post things that you truly need. We recommend reaching out to your church or community for immediate needs.
- Resources can only be posted by DC127 foster families and Safe Families volunteers, but anyone is welcome to fill these needs.
If you have any questions, concerns, or suggestions, feel free to email email@example.com.
