Helping to Equip Foster Families

Equipping the Called provides new/gently used, current styled clothing, undies/diapers, and toiletries for foster families in Southern Illinois.

We also help reduce the financial strain a new placement can have on a foster family by freeing up funds that would otherwise be used to fulfill these immediate needs. These needs are not always met immediately and this is where we step in.

About Us

Watch Equipping The Called on The Thread

We had the opportunity to be on The Thread with Pastor Tim Ezell. Julie shares how Equipping the Called started and what we do on a daily basis to serve our local foster community.
