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.

Due to the current Stay at Home order, the Wishing Well will be closed for at least the next 2 weeks. Please check back as we will post any updates here.

If you are a caregiver and have an immediate need or emergent placement please reach out to us and we will make sure your foster child has what he/she needs.

Thank you again for your understanding and for all of the support you each provide throughout the year. We couldn't do it without our amazing community! Stay safe and healthy!
