Kids Blowing Bubbles

Children's Welcome Bags

The Child Intake Bags are meant to be given to the children that come into shelter.  These bags are based on their different ages, stages in life, and gender, and are meant for child development. Children who enter our shelter often do so while leaving most of their beloved toys, books and possession at home.  These bags are a way to help them with the transition of entering shelter.
