Duffle Bag Project
Your help is needed.
Your donation of new duffle bags will help ease a child's transition from emergency housing to a long-term home. New duffle bags provide kids with a sensible means to transport their belongings as they transition from emergency housing to a long-term home.
You can help by leading a collection of brand-new overnight duffle bags (expandable/collapsable bags work best).
Your support will make it possible for children and teens to easily transport their personal belongings as they transition back to their families or to another caring home. With your help we can make sure kids do not have to transport their personal items in a plastic bag.
Each year more than 300 children and teens find temporary safe housing at Center For Family Services. During their stay at one of our safe homes, children are provided with a stable foundation that allows them to heal, grow, and experience joy. Services help to instill confidence and self-worth in our youth, empowering them to pave their path to a better life and brighter future. Family reunification is always our primary goal and whenever possible we support youth in transitioning back home. When this is not possible, we support youth in transitioning to another caring home.
