Foster Child

We first heard of children traveling through foster care with their belongings in trash bags, while in adoption classes.  It was a moment that we won’t forget.  When children are removed from their biological homes, it is often in a stressful situation. The social worker grabs a trash bag and fills it with the child’s most beloved items and some clothes.  Many times this trash bag travels from home to home with a child.  Children in foster care will often talk about how the sound of a trash bag reminds them of moving.  This broke our hearts!  In 2011 we asked our church and family to help us begin monogramming duffle bags and filling each bag with comfort items.  The word began to spread and to date, almost 22,000 children have received monogrammed duffle bags.

Bags of Hope is a project of One Less, the Orphan Care Ministry of His Providence Church. Bags of Hope is not a non-profit organization but every dollar given is tax exempt through the church.
