The Wishing Well

We are a community-based support agency that is focused on the well-being of foster youth in Pierce County. Our mission is to provide the clothing, supplies, and experiences unavailable to most foster children and to retain quality foster homes in Pierce County by addressing financial barriers to accepting foster placements.
