Placement Packs

Being removed from home can be unsettling and frightening. Often a child is removed from an unsafe situation and is taken with nothing but the clothes on his/her back. Placement packs contain essential personal items and a few “goodies” to comfort a child through the trauma of entering a strange, new environment. Assemble and donate a placement pack.
