We provide vital
help to
Foster Children

When Youth in care, age out of foster care on their 18th birthday, these children are provided a black trash bag to pack up whatever belongings they may have. These trash bags send the wrong message to children whose biggest desire is to just be part of a loving home. Our suitcases provide dignity and help send a different message. A message that communicates that you are not alone and others care!
