Coming Soon

A welcoming place for foster, kinship, and adoptive families to gather essential items for children and youth in their care.

What is Abundant Goods?

Abundant Goods by Foster Together MN is a shopping and resource center that is intentionally designed for foster, kinship, and adoptive families to collect items for youth who are in their care. Items include clothing, shoes, hygiene products, baby products, and other essential items. The space will be filled with positive affirmations, promoting dignity and value of all who enter. Families are able to come during our open shopping hours or by appointment with a Foster Together MN team member. 

How can I help?


This initiative is 100% donation funded. Funding supports building costs to create a space that aligns with our vision, as well as to stock the shelves. Visit our fundraising page to make a donation (one-time or recurring).

Why is this important?

 In our short time of being established, there have been countless times that we hear the phrase

“they came with nothing”

from foster parents who have just had a youth placed in their care. While we have found great success with our

Meet-A-Need program, we see a gap in being able to quickly fulfill tangible needs for emergency foster care

placements. In 2021, we spent over $10,000 on outreach items through our Meet-A-Need program. It currently

can take up to a week to collect or purchase and distribute all items for each request. By having a stocked resource center, we could more quickly get items in the hands of the foster family. 


Abundant Goods will provide essential items to these youth, helping them find dignity and comfort during a

traumatic and fearful time in their life. Through collaboration with foster families and agencies, we’ll be able to

identify specific needs as well as opening up the Abundant Goods to foster families and youth to come shop for free.

We will partner with the community to stock our shelves with new and gently used items that will go straight into the hands of youth in our community. This partnership will include donations and volunteer opportunities.
