Cap the Gap does exactly what its title implies -we work to fill in the large GAP between being a foster child and being part of one’s own family. While living in foster care, the State provides only the basic needs of food, clothing, medical care and shelter. These chil­dren have so many other needs that are not met or even addressed.  As a non-profit, all-volunteer organization, our goal is to assist foster children so they may reach their full potential while promoting self-esteem, emotional stability, and overall well-being.
