In 2007, E. Ann Kosewicz initiated Koz’s Kloset in loving memory of her daughter Cheryl Kosewicz. Koz’s Kloset provides new tennis shoes for Clark County children and is located in a room at the O’Bannon Cottage at Child Haven. During their first year they provided over 2,416 new tennis shoes for children at Child Haven.
Child Haven sees over 350 children a month and 1000 visits between foster children and families. Jolie Courtney, Interim Child Haven Family Programs Manager said, “It seems that shoes are one of the things that we at Child Haven go through the most.”
