When a child enters foster care, a trash bag is often used to hold their personal belongings? A Journey Bag can help a child feel loved and not forgotten during a very difficult time in their life.
Journey Bags consist of a diaper bag, backpack, or duffle bag filled with basic necessities for a child as well as some fun items/comfort items. They all include socks, underwear, pajamas, hygiene/self-care items, along with age-appropriate toys, books, journals, and comfort items. We also like to include encouraging notes to the children and foster parents.

YES! We encourage families to volunteer together- this can provide teaching moments to foster compassion and understanding in your child or teen.
