I work at a Domestic Violence shelter in north GA. I use these bags to put a smile on the kids faces when they have to come into shelter. Without them a lot of my shelter kids would be very unhappy. It gives the kids a feeling of comfort to have something that is there's when they come into shelter.
Adventure Bags has been such a great program to the foster families of Jackson County. The foster parents depend on the items in the bags especially when the children come to the foster families with nothing, but the Adventure Bag. Any child who is being removed from their birth family is scared, frightened and nervous and these bags do help momentarily with that. The child is able to have their own bag and a small toy, which makes a world of difference to a child who is going to a foster family whom they have never seen before. Jackson County DFCS also depends on Adventure Bags and the support they offer to the foster families of Jackson County. They are an excellent program that I strongly encourage everyone to particiapte in.
