Nurtured By Love


An upscale boutique, exclusively for foster children, to provide them with a free shopping experience for clothing, shoes, personal items, age appropriate Bibles, backpacks/suitcases, hygiene items and anything else a child may need. The State stipend for these items is less than $300 a year. Our community wants these beautiful children to know they are extra special and very loved.

What is Fostering by Faith?

We are a non-profit 501(c)3 organization. 

The boutique is located in Houston and is run by Joy Hinkle, Dana Sparks, community volunteers and the staff of the law offices of Kimberly Lowe. We currently have two locations for donation drop offs – 219 N. Grand, Houston, Missouri and 107 N. Benton, Waynesville, Missouri.

The Boutique is currently located at  219 N. Grand in Houston, Missouri on the top floor. The entrance is by the beautiful flower garden at the back of the building.
