All social service agencies within the state of Georgia can place an order for their donation of Comfort Cases and Comfort XL’s through this special program. This latest milestone is the culmination of a longstanding partnership between Comfort Cases and Amerigroup Georgia to ensure dignity and support for children in foster care.
“Amerigroup’s longstanding support for Comfort Cases exemplifies our commitment to making a positive difference in the lives of every child across Georgia, extending beyond medical care. We are focused on providing youth in foster care not only the physical support they need, but also the emotional support, dignity, and happiness that will improve their quality of life and well-being,” said Mel Lindsey, President, Amerigroup Georgia. “We are proud to expand our partnership with Comfort Cases to address the needs of our most vulnerable youth and ensure they have the love, care, and support they need when they need it most.”
The partnership between Amerigroup Georgia and Comfort Cases marks a historic moment in the nation’s efforts to support children in the foster care system. The first-of-its-kind initiative showcases the power of collective action and sets an inspiring precedent for other states to follow.
