Resources for Kids in Care

Every child deserves a wish come true. The holidays are full of uncertainty and questions for foster children.

Questions like, "Will Santa find my new house?" or, "Will anyone remember me this Christmas?" The Wish List is a Buncombe County program aimed at making sure foster children in our care get a present this holiday season.

Foster children throughout our county would be delighted to see a present just for them this holiday season. This is a great way to share the excitement and joy of the holidays with a child that needs it so much. There are 2 easy ways to find a foster child's wish list:

  • Visit for more information on the wish list program and how to sponsor. Or click here to go straight to the wish list(s) that you would like to sponsor and enter your contact information. You are welcome to select more than one wish list.
  • If you would like to talk with us about sponsoring a child's wish list, please contact us at: (828) 620-2944 or by email at

Together we can make the holidays magical and memorable for our Buncombe County children in foster care. Please consider a sponsorship or a donation.

Wrapped and labeled gifts must be returned to 35 Woodfin Street, Ground Level A, no later than December 14th.

We ask that you either wrap gifts or place them in a large bag with a label that includes: Child's Name, Age, # on wish
