new shoe program
Rose Again Foundation provides new, quality, properly fitted shoes to foster children and emancipated foster youth for school, work, extra curricular activities, and at the beginning of the school year.
Foster children are quickly removed from their home with little to nothing but the clothes on their backs. If they come with shoes they are most often very worn and do not fit properly. We see foot problems with foster kids associated to the lack of proper footwear.
For most kids new shoes are a fashion statement and they may have several pair. For foster kids the new shoes we provide to them may be the first and only new pair of shoes they have ever owned. This may be the first time they were comfortable in shoes. New shoes allow foster kids to feel comfortable, fashionable and worthy.
