Foster Closet of San Angelo We aim to come alongside our local foster families to help with some of the physical needs they encounter. Through relationships built with both the foster parents and the children we hope to showcase and point to the glory and love of God.

Foster moms and dads, MARK YOUR CALENDARS! Whether you are sending the kids to school or doing virtual school, you’ll need supplies.
We’ll have two dates this year, in order to make it easier on you! Tuesday, Jul 28 and Thursday Aug 06, both days from 3:30pm-6:30pm. We are setting up a registration online so that we can have an idea of who is coming in order to regulate for social distancing purposes. Keep an eye out, we’ll get it posted ASAP! ♥️ #thegospelisourwhy

“Hey girl! Need help!”

That’s the text I received when one of our local foster mamas was getting a new placement. That is exactly how easy this is y’all!

That evening I met her at the Closet and she loaded up on what she needed. We are here to help you say “YES” when you get a call about a placement.

You do the hard work of caring for these precious kiddos. Let us make it just a little easier on you 🖤

Foster care is hard, from every angle. It’s hard on the kids, their world has been rocked. It’s hard on bio parents, we need to be in constant prayer for them. It’s hard on foster siblings, strangers coming in to their life and requiring much attention from their mom and dad. It’s hard on foster parents, schedules completely thrown off and diving into the heartache of the reality these kiddos are accustomed to. Foster care is hard, you can’t do it alone. Let us come alongside you. Let us help. #fostercareishard #butworthit #thegospelisourwhy

Foster Dads, Thank you for doing what you're doing. You are loving in some of the hardest and deepest and most complicated places. Places most men go to great lengths to avoid. Yet you, with arms open and hearts broken, have courageously stepped towards them for the sake of others. That is so counte

I love it when I get pictures of the kids with their new stuff!! 😍 Could she be any cuter?! .*.*.*.*.*.*. The Foster Closet is not just for emergency placements, nor does our support end if/when you adopt. We hope to walk alongside you through the whole journey, start to finish. #fostercare #adoption #respite #kinship #fictivekin #fostercloset #thegospelisourwhy

I received a call today about a foster family trying to reunite 2 brothers. The room is not large enough to fit 2 separate twin beds so they are in need of a bunk bed. I already have had mattresses donated. Let me know if you can help! 🤗♥️ #fostercare #fostercloset #thegospelisourwhy

This never gets old, but apparently I do 😜 #FosterCare

These 2 have done so much to help our Closet! So proud of them and their heart for foster children.

These 2 have done so much to help our Closet! So proud of them and their heart for foster children.

We are Justin & Chelsea Smith.

We have three biological children and currently two foster children. We have been a licensed foster home through Arrow Child & Family Ministries since June of 2019.

Even though we haven’t been licensed that long, our foster care journey began a few years ago. We knew God was leading us to get involved, but we didn’t know exactly what that would look like or how to begin. So, we attended one of the monthly informational meetings and gathered as much information we could on the matter. We eased in by first becoming respite certified. We did respite care for foster families and began working alongside organizations that directly supported the foster care community, such as the Foster Closet of San Angelo.

Soon after, we began to work towards our licensing. We chose Arrow because of their values and beliefs. We believe strongly in family, forgiveness, and redemption. The Gospel is God offering us complete redemption through Jesus Christ and a place in His family. We want to share that same hope with the children and families we encounter. The Gospel is our why.

We entered foster care with the understanding that reunification is always the initial goal. We want to offer these children, as well as their biological families, the encouragement and support necessary to reunify and restore their family unit. If that isn’t possible, we want to advocate for the best interests of the children by supporting the plans that place them in the most safe and healthy environments.

We don’t know where this journey will take us. All we know is that the Lord has called us to step up and press into the hard and broken places and love people regardless. For now, we know that God has called us to be the bridge, that gets these children from one place to another, whether that be home to their birth families, or to their next forever family.

It’s our hope that briefly sharing our story will encourage others to get involved or seek more information in doing so.
