TSM 17-15 Forster Children’s Comfort Cases with Rob Scheer

Thier Story Matters with Sara Troy and her guest Rob Scheer, on air from April 11th

“I remember the first day Amaya came to stay with us. She was four years old, moving into her third foster home and carrying her entire life in a white trash bag,” said Comfort Cases founder Rob Scheer.

“Having experienced foster care myself, I was disgusted to see a child forced to carry around their things like they were garbage. We took her out to buy new clothes and she picked out a Cinderella nightgown.”

“From that moment, I knew we needed to make a change.”

PROVIDING COMFORT AND SUPPORT FOR KIDS IN FOSTER CARE

Scheer founded Comfort Cases, a non-profit organization provides backpacks with essential items like toiletries, pyjamas, activities and other items for children in foster care. The charity went from providing about 300 kits in 2013 to donating 25,000 to kids in the D.C., Maryland and Virginia foster care systems last year.

Rob is an outspoken advocate for children in foster care and speaks all over the country. He was recently honored at the Family Equality Council Impact Awards in Los Angeles, Calif.

A LITTLE DIGNITY AND CARE GOES A LONG WAY, YOU ARE THE DIFFERENCE THAT IS NEEDED TO BUILD A BETTER SOCIETY.
