About Comfort Cases:
Rob Scheer founded Comfort Cases in 2013 to help children in foster care feel a sense of dignity and self-worth as they make difficult transitions from home to home. Rob, a former foster kid himself and now an adoptive father of four children from foster care, is dedicated to helping by providing “Comfort Cases” – backpacks and duffel bags lovingly filled with brand new pajamas, blankets, journals, pens, coloring books, crayons and toiletries and previously loved books and stuffed animals. Sadly, youth in foster care often carry any belongings they have to call their own in trash bags. Comfort Cases’ mantra? “No More Trash Bags!” Rob shares his difficult story to raise awareness and support – and to help children in foster care believe they too can overcome difficult beginnings. Rob also endeavors to erode the stigma of spending time in foster care.
