Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Children placed in foster care are many times not treated with dignity. When they are placed into a home or shelter, they may come with a trash bag to carry their luggage. Our goal is to provide them with a sense of hope and dignity to help them heal from the trauma they have experienced.

Children, youth, and families experiencing foster care desperately need our entire communities. This is why we have developed the Adopt a Senior from Foster Care, A Serenity Activity Pack (ASAP) for law enforcement to share with youth, #LoveDelivered Campaign, the birthday box, and many more specialized campaigns–to create real impact through intentional giving, relationship building, and mentorship.

1) We accomplish this through our many campaigns, where we partner with multiple charitable organizations, hospitals, law enforcement that may be the first connection to someone entering foster care.
2) It is our hope that with this added layer of high-quality bags, elimination of the use of trash bags, caring social workers, committed community, so many foster parents would have the support that they need to continue to know that they are not "trash" and deserve to be treated with dignity.
3) We increase normalcy by providing foster youth with filled bags for "Welcome Bags", or toiletry bags filled for sex-trafficking victims. We also provide law enforcement officers with filled bags for situations that a child needs to be comforted.

We work with so many agencies, nonprofits, faith-based organizations, and hospitals to ensure we are covering the first-line workers that may encounter someone coming into care. We provide them a great bag and at times, filled with necessities for the initial contact.

Each year, we continue to reach out to more states, partner with more agencies, deliver more bags to foster youth, impact more children than previous years.
