Cause & Purpose Podcast | Comfort Cases: Transforming the Foster Care System with Rob Scheer

In this episode, we are joined by Rob Scheer, founder and CEO of Comfort Cases, an organization that supports kids in the foster care system. Rob, who grew up in foster care himself, shares his personal story and sheds light on how the foster care system functions. He emphasizes that empathy is not innate but taught, and discusses the need for dignity and basic necessities for kids in the system. Rob challenges the notion that the system is broken and instead highlights the importance of understanding and supporting children in foster care. Tune in to hear more about Rob’s inspiring journey and the work of Comfort Cases.

“If we’re going to pay for these children’s tuition, we need to pay for all the wraparound services to make them healthy humans of our society, because that’s what we want.”
