WE BELIEVE IN MAKING SURE EVERY CHILD FEELS SEEN,
VALUED, AND LOVED.
One way we do this is by ensuring every child is given a comfort kit as they enter the foster care system. These kits are filled with things that meet both the physical and emotional needs of a child on what is probably one of the most frightening days of their life. A snack to help ease the pang of hunger. A small toy or coloring book to give them something to do in the hours they wait to determine where they will be going. A blanket or stuffed animal to cuddle on that first scary night in a new home. An encouraging note that says "We see you. You are important. You matter to us." Each comfort kit is unique and special just like the kids we serve.
This year, Love Waterford has committed to providing 40 Comfort Kits for elementary aged kids.
