Providing security and comfort to a child in crisis...
Through the Eyes of a Child...
Imagine it is 2 o’clock in the morning, you are sound asleep and before you know it, the unimaginable happens. You have to leave and everything you know in your pajamas and all you have time to grab is the closest thing to you. What would you do? What would you take with you if you were given the opportunity, your clothes, your toothbrush, toothpaste or your favorite stuffed animal?
Every day across the nation, children are being displaced for one reason or another. A fire in the home, a legal situation, a horrible accident, or worse. Georgia children face these situations far too often leaving all that is familiar behind them.
ADVENTURE BAGS are a way to give children going through a traumatic event in their lives something to call their own and keep with them wherever they go.
Important items like a teddy bear, toothbrush/toothpaste, hair brush, comb, soap, washcloth, shampoo, and socks.
Our goal is to help the Department of Family & Children Services along with other service organizations across Georgia, to distribute ADVENTURE BAGS to local agencies such as Homeless Shelters, S.A.F.E., Children After the Fire, etc. It is our desire to begin an ongoing opportunity to help provide security and comfort to a child in crisis.
Agencies across the state are faced with the difficult task of protecting CHILDREN. However, they are armed with nothing to help them children feel at ease at possibly the very worst moment in their lives.
After all, displaced children are not specific to one agency...they ALL need our help!
