About the Wishing Well Foundation

The Wishing Well provides new and gently-used clothing and school supplies to children 0-18 years of age who are currently placed in the foster care system in Pierce County. We are the only foster support agency of its kind working in Pierce County.

We are a nonprofit support agency focused on the well-being of abused and neglected youth within the foster care system. Our mission is to provide the clothing, supplies, and experiences unavailable to most foster kids and to retain quality foster homes in Pierce County by addressing financial barriers to accepting foster placements.

Our Partners

Would any individual or group be willing to help with childcare or a light meal/snacks on Monday the 24th of February at the monthly caregiver support group? The group meets at the Waller Road Grange from 6pm to 730pm.

The Foster Parent Support Group meets every 4th Monday of the month if you would like to help on a different date.

On average there are 10 to 20 adults and roughly 5 to 10 kids.

Thank you in advance for your continued support! Please comment or message me if interested.

UPDATE - ALL ROOMS HAVE BEEN CLAIMED! Will post pictures of the MAKEOVERS 😉

The Tacoma DCYF Office has asked for help to makeover their 3 visitation rooms. Any groups or organizations looking for a fun and meaningful project? If we could get 3 Teams to each take on a room it would be AMAZING. This would mean so much to our foster children and families. Here are a few pictures of the current rooms and the last 2 are inspirational ❤️
