Totes for Tots and Teens (Project T³) Inc. is a non-profit organization to benefit the unfortunate, but very much loved, children who end up in Foster Care.   


Until Project T3 was established, foster children in the Southeastern Indiana area were given a garbage bag to put their belongings in when being removed from their home.  This project provides these children with an overnight bag of their very own to transport their belongings.  Inside the bag they are also given a few age-appropriate personal items that might make their transition a little easier for them. 

Project T3 also provides children in Southeastern Indiana who are in foster homes, family placements, shelters, or group homes with a backpack and school supplies in early August.
