Comfort Cases are backpacks filled with brand new items including pajamas, socks, a blanket, a stuffed animal, a hygiene kit, a dental kit, and other age-appropriate supplies. Each Comfort Case is meant to provide comfort and the essentials for a child’s first night in foster care. For more specific information about the contents of Comfort Cases for infants, children, and teens, please visit our What’s a Comfort Case page. Each agency may order up to 50 Comfort Cases per month, and if the agency is able to pay for the shipping costs, they may order up to 100 Comfort Cases.
We also offer Comfort XL duffel bags which truly replace the need for trash bags for children entering foster care. The Comfort XL is a 32 inch duffel bag that folds up to easily fit on an office shelf, in a desk drawer, or in the trunk of a car.
Our goal is for every social worker and police officer in the country to have a supply of Comfort XL duffel bags to give to children when they are removed from their homes. A trash bag should never be a child’s suitcase. Our Comfort XL duffels are packaged in boxes of 25, and each agency can order up to 2 boxes per month.
