A non-profit, boutique-style store where foster parents can bring their foster children to shop for clothing and other basic necessities at no cost to the families. The goal of Studio Thriftyfor the Kids is to provide a sense of normalcy to foster children by sending them home with basic needs to set them up for success.
Cassie Slone, who started The Foster Care Council in 2012, heads up Studio Thriftyfor the Kids with her colleague, Lindy Hester.
