Since 2016 Crystal Speirs Photography LLC has donated Newborn Mini Sessions for Foster Babies up to 8 weeks adjusted age, Discounted birthday and milestone sessions, Discounted/Sponsored Senior Sessions, and Donated Adoption Day Photos.
In 2017 our family was blessed to be a part of the Foster Family Community with Our own Foster Daughter. My heart has always been with this community since a teen when I was placed as a ward of the state and grew up with a NON-Relative caregiver since there was no room in the foster homes for a teen.
I am SO EXCITED and Blessed to partner with Treasure Coast Foster Closet and raise funds/items for the children in our local community.

What is the Treasure Coast Foster Closet?
We are a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that provides local foster families with like new children’s items that are donated by our generous community. Most people are unaware that the majority of children coming into foster care come with only the clothes on their back. Can you imagine being a child, taken from everything you’ve ever known, without anything to call your own?
Foster families do not pay for this service, everything in our store is 100% free to them, and we don’t put limits on how much they can take. We give our foster families 24/7 access to our facility. They never know when they may get a call. We serve every child in the foster family. We see the sacrifice that “foster siblings” make to be able to care for extra children, and we want to ensure that they aren’t overlooked.
Our ministry provides so much more than just physical needs for foster families. These families that are serving on the front lines of foster care are able to know that their community sees their sacrifice and wants to rally around them and support them. When they utilize our service, they are able to focus their resources, time and attention on loving these children.
Since our services are 100% free. We rely solely on the financial support from individuals just like YOU! We have no paid staff members, this is truly a labor of love.
