The notion of a Care Bag is a simple one. While a child is waiting to be placed, the social worker can hand the child a bag of age-appropriate items to occupy their time while in the DHS office. This bag is then theirs to keep and take with them into their new foster home. Since many children enter foster care with very few belongings, the psychological importance of owning a bag full of nice things cannot be underestimated!
As a community, we can stand beside these caseworkers and children. While we can’t change the sad circumstances these children have already experienced, we can at least provide a tangible source of comfort and hope for the journey ahead.
