Our Village Closet
Our Village Closet (OVC) is committed to improving outcomes and building resiliency for youth and caregivers affected by foster/kinship care in Sonoma County by providing relevant, ongoing, no-cost supplies and support. Our goal is to equip foster youth and caregivers with support and resource connections, essential supplies, and materials that can help fortify a safe, consistent, and nurturing home environment for those impacted by the welfare system. By doing this, we hope to provide needed, extra layers of support that strengthen connections and help the youth and caregivers of foster care feel seen, feel heard, and feel a sense of belonging. In doing so, we work to make it easier to say, “YES!” to fostering CARE to youth in need.
