"Providing security and comfort to a child in crisis..."
ADVENTURE BAGS is a local non-profit organization, which began on October 15, 2011 with our first fundraiser and an official bag stuffing and from there we have grown! We are dedicated to helping supply essential items needed to help provide a sense of ownership to the children entering foster care or other agencies throughout Georgia.
The idea behind the organization is simple, organizations that work with displaced children (i.e. DFCS, homeless shelters, domestic violence shelters, and teen shelters) would give the child a book bag important items like: a stuffed animal, toothbrush, toothpaste, under garments, hair brush or comb, socks, coloring books, crayons and a journal to write down their thoughts with so that when they do have to go to an unfamiliar place they have some items ALL of their own.
Agencies across GEORGIA are faced with the difficult task of attempting to protect GEORGIA CHILDREN; however, often times they are armed with nothing to help these children feel at ease, at least for the moment. ADVENTURE BAGS are a way for each child who has to go through this traumatic event to have something immediately of their own to keep with them and take with them wherever they go.
The mission is to help distribute across Georgia ADVENTURE BAGS to agencies in Georgia. With these bags it is our desire to begin an ongoing opportunity to help agencies give children who are displaced something of their own to feel a sense of security when what they knew to be home, is not an option at that time.
