How You Can Help

Not everyone is able to become a foster parent.

But there are many other ways you can help
foster families and foster children.

Give Financially


$20 = Provides respite for one child

$25 = Provides school supplies for one child

$50 = Provides school supplies for three children

$100  = Provides clothing for a child entering foster care

$500 = Sponsors a foster child for a week of Summer Camp 

$5000 = Sponsors a family! Help us train and license a new foster home


Donate School Supplies & Gift Cards


A new school year means new school supplies, which can be expensive for foster parents. To help our foster families, each August, Giocosa collects donations of new school supplies, including new backpacks, for our foster children throughout the state. However, school supplies are needed throughout the year!


Gift cards, in any amount, from stores like Wal-Mart, HEB, and Target are always welcome! We distribute these cards to our families to help purchase clothing for children who are new placements and home supplies like laundry detergent, toilet paper, etc. These cards can also be used by Giocosa to purchase gifts for Christmas, adoptions and birthdays for the foster children in our care. General gift cards from VISA, Mastercard & AMEX are also always welcome!


If you are interested in donating, please contact our staff at:

Sponsor a Birthday or Holiday


Birthdays for foster children can be difficult. But you can help make any foster child's birthday a happy celebration! With a donation of $100, you can help Giocosa provide a birthday cake, birthday decorations and presents to a deserving child. Or if you prefer, we can provide you with the name and wish list for a foster child's upcoming birthday.


The holidays are full of magic, mistletoe & merriment! You can help provide that Christmas morning magic and make a foster child smile by donating Christmas presents to Giocosa's foster children throughout the state. We begin distributing Christmas Wishlists in October and all donations are needed by mid-December to allow for enough time for distribution.
