How Little willows operates

We began by collecting clothes from many different families that no longer needed them. Our dream was to give new life to these well loved clothes so that when placed in the hands of a new family they felt like an intentional gift. In order to ensure the clothing sets meet our standards, we do a lot of sorting and organizing so we can meet the current size and seasonal needs of each child that receives it. This hard work is rewarded with the joy and ease it brings to families receiving a beautiful box.  This would not be possible without the hard work of the Little Willows staff, volunteers and Board.

 

Through local partnering organizations, it is our privilege to provide these beautiful, coordinated sets to children who need them.  Our hope is that each box helps cultivate strength & confidence in a child's life so they can withstand the greatest of challenges.

Kim co-founded Little Willows in 2018. Kim served as Executive Director of Little Willows as the vision and mission took shape in the community. Kim opened her home to children in foster care in 2021 when she saw the need for more homes for the most vulnerable children in our community. Kim has welcomed two boys into her home through foster care, and will forever welcome them into her family through adoption some time this year. Kim continues to contribute to the vision and mission of Little Willows through her passion for community collaboration and individual soul care through a pastoral lens.
