At A Mighty Change of Heart, our core program currently focuses on providing personalized duffle bags to children in Arizona entering the foster system. When a child reaches their new foster home they are often sad and confused and need to know someone still cares about them. To add to this feeling of distress, they typically take very little with them in terms of possessions. This is where A Mighty Change of Heart comes in. The child’s first name is embroidered on a new duffle bag that will go with them where ever life may take them. The bag is then filled to order with new clothes, shoes, hygiene items, toys, books, and more. In this effort we hope to provide each child with something they can truly call their own at a time when everything else in life may be borrowed.
Currently we have been able to deliver over 8,100 bags to children in foster care!
