An Exceptional Pair of Parents Meets Ellen
On any given day, nearly 428,000 children are in the foster care system in the United States. Of the thousands of children who enter the system each year, most arrive carrying little more than the clothes on their backs. If they are afforded the opportunity to collect any personal belongings, many are then given a trash bag in which to place and carry their personal items. It is a time of great upheaval and instability, and their first foster home placement is unlikely to be their last. Many children in foster care will be moved from home to home multiple times, carrying their life’s treasures in a trash bag. At Comfort Cases we believe that every child deserves to feel a sense of dignity. Every child deserves to pack their belongings in a special bag that they can call their own. It is our mission as a charity to provide a proper bag, filled with comfort and essential items, to these brave children on their journey to find their forever home.
How to Help
At Comfort Cases, we believe in a compassionate community that cares for the most vulnerable among us, and foster children need support from all of us. From in-kind and monetary donations to volunteering in our Center to driving deliveries of comfort cases to our partner agencies, there are many ways to become involved. Please join us on our mission to bring comfort and dignity to foster children in need.
