Georgia Takeover Program

Amerigroup Georgia is excited to announce a first-of-its-kind partnership with Comfort Cases®

Comfort Cases is a global nonprofit organization focused on providing comfort, personal care items, and duffle bags to youth entering Georgia’s foster care system with the goal of eliminating the common occurrence of these youth carrying their belongings in trash bags from placement to placement. 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 few nights in foster care, from newborns to teens.
Through this partnership, Amerigroup Georgia is committed to ensuring that every child in Georgia’s foster care system knows they matter by providing them with a Comfort Case and bringing dignity and hope to our most vulnerable youth.
Exclusive Order Form for State of Georgia

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.

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 each month. 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 in a backpack or 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 Georgia 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 32, and each agency can order up to 2 boxes each month.


“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 exclusive 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.

Help us bring dignity and hope to children entering foster care and help us eliminate trash bags! #NoMoreTrashBags
