Home: Read about orphan care facts, watch videos from a foster child’s perspective, sign up for our News Letter for news and updates to find out how you can become a part of a greater solution.
About Us: On this page you can read about ‘our story’ of why we decided to give our family to children in need and meet Teytum, whom we adopted out of the foster care system.
Give A TG Gift: Here you will find a detailed explanation on how to put together a Teytum’s Gift, print off directions, and contact us if you’re interested in doing a backpack drive or would like your donations picked up.
Donate Materials: Here is a list of our most frequently needed items. Please keep in mind that all items must fit inside a backpack.
[backpacks, blankets, travel sized toiletries (baby shampoo, baby body wash, shampoo, conditioner, deodorant, body soap) underwear, socks, baby onsies, bottles, pacifiers, travel formula, sippy cups, reusable water bottles, coloring books, activity books, drawing/sketch pads, journals, pencil pouches, colored pencils, crayons, glue sticks, wide-ruled and college ruled spiral notebooks and composition books, small flashlights (batteries included), bushes and combs, toothbrushes and toothpaste]

Partners & Donors: We are so thankful our church and community partners. If you are interested in partnering with Teytum’s Gifts, you can fill out the form on this page and we will contact you or give us a call.
Foster Care: Take a moment to read current statistics and facts about children in foster care. There is also answers to common questions regarding becoming a foster parent.
Adopt: Give your family to a foster child forever.
Volunteer: Become a CASA worker or volunteer at a shelter.
Store: You can purchase TG sweatshirts, t-shirts, hats and car stickers online.
Become an Office Buddy: Becoming an office buddy is one way you can help children who have been removed from their homes. Removed children sometimes have to wait for long periods of time as a Social Worker secures a placement for them. Office Buddies come to the department to supervise children and provide a supportive and nurturing environment that will minimize trauma to the child during a time of crisis. Please consider this opportunity to help in a time of great need and be a part of making a difference.
