Faith Based Partnerships

Comfort Bag Ministry

Comfort bags are for children who must go into out-of-home care or to care in a relatives’ home because their birth families are unable to safely care for them for a period of time. Children benefit from basic personal and comfort items during this upsetting and often urgent time of transition. These bags are collected and distributed in partnership with the local Children’s Administration Office. Read More
