Dignity Bags

Most children who enter foster care are have already experienced terrible trauma.  Moving from home, regardless of how bad it is, into foster care, even if it is a better situation can cause even more stress.  Most of these children suffer from self esteem issues and being forced to carry all their belongings in a trash bag is degrading and can reinforce the negative self image they already have .

For Families Like Us launched a program called dignity bag”, an effort to help ease the painful transition by providing a bag to foster children throughout the state
