Emancipation Baskets

In May of each year, CPC members are asked to support foster care youth by purchasing new household items which make up the Emancipation Baskets given to those youth who have completed the Independent Living Program and are ready to move into independent housing.
The Independent Living Project is a federally funded, county administered program designed to assist foster youth who choose to participate in the 12 weeks of classes and counseling offered. Through these classes they are guided to resources and services which will enable them to successfully transition from foster care to independence.

Emancipation Basket collection is typically scheduled for early May. Dates will be announced in early spring. If you would like to donate one or more of the items listed below, please bring your donations to the Church Office Conference Room during those dates.  Our baskets will then be delivered to the Social Services offices.
