“Whoever welcomes one such child in my name, welcomes me.”

Welcome Bags Wish List

When a child first arrives at the Board of Child Care, it can be an emotionally scary event in his/her life. To ease their transition to our group living settings, a welcome bag is provided for each youth in our residential programs. The bags serve as a first impression of welcoming and warmth to our community. We hope they are also a reminder that they are now surrounded by those who care about
