Resources for Kids in Care

A small child with a huge smile holding a gift; overlaying text says 'Every child deserves a wish. Sponsor a foster child's wish list and make their holiday magical.'

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.

There are 2 easy ways to find a foster child's wish list:

  • Visit the Foster Care Wish List to find the child or children 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

Don't have time to shop? You can make a tax-deductible Wish List donation through our nonprofit partner, Buncombe County Service Foundation. Click here to donate now.

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 Ground Level A, 35 Woodfin Street between December 1st and December 15th.
  • 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

Contact us at (828) 620-2944 or by email at if you have questions about the program.
