The Bag Ladies exist to provide children in crisis situations a variety of comfort items in their own personalized bag. Something small, something special, something they can call their own.
The Bag Ladies is a 501 (c) 3 Non-Profit Organization founded in 2009 to help bring comfort to children in crisis. We are located in the heart of the Missouri Ozarks and serve various agencies in this area.
Because every child is special, our goal is to provide unique, personalized bags to children in crisis, whether they are moving into foster care or a shelter. These bags provide each child with a way to transport items with them while they are in transition. The bags also give them something specially made that is uniquely theirs. An age appropriate comfort item is included with each bag. Comfort items include a blanket, stuffed toy, book or journal.
Our hope is that with each bag created and placed in the hands of a child, that child will feel comforted and will be reminded that people in their community care about them.
