Education Initiative

A Kid's Place of Tampa Bay strives to improve educational outcomes for foster children. We achieve this by working in collaboration with child welfare agencies and community partners to ensure at-risk underserved children in foster care have the tools and resources they need to achieve academic success. 

Currently there are more than 5,000 foster children throughout Tampa Bay and approximately 70% of our children are Pre-K through 18 years of age.  

Back to School Items Needed:

  • Glue sticks
  • Elmer's glue
  • Markers
  • Pens (blue, black, red)
  • Flash drives
  • Sturdy backpacks
  • Zippered binders (middle school students)
  • Athletic socks (black or white)
  • Underwear
  • New tennis shoes
With thanks to the many supporters who provide for our children, we are currently in need of very few school supplies and are now looking for some basic necessities to help start the school year off right.  Thank you for doing your part to make sure our children are provided with the things they need to succeed!
