Meet Comfort Cases
Comfort Cases® is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization whose mission is to inspire communities to bring dignity and hope to youth in foster care through Comfort, Community, Character and Compassion. On any given day, there are approximately 437,500 children in the foster care system in the United States. Most of them are removed from their homes with little more than the clothes on their backs. If they do have any personal belongings, they are given a trash bag in which to carry them.
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 very own. Every child deserves to have a cozy new pair of pajamas, a brand new warm blanket, and a new stuffed animal to hug during the traumatic transition into foster care. Additionally, Comfort Cases distributes Comfort XL's, large 32” duffel bags that are provided to youth entering care to place their belongings in so they never have to experience the indignity of carrying their belongings in a trash bag.
Since 2014, we have impacted the lives of over 200,000 youth entering foster care in all 50 states, Washington, DC, Puerto Rico, and the United Kingdom. Help us eliminate trash bags in our foster care system by donating to a Comfort Case at www.comfortcases.org/donate
