Children entering the foster care system often leave home without the items they value, like their favorite teddy bear, blanket and other personal items.  We believe children entering the foster care system should be greeted with the love of a care package they can call their own so we created Soothing the Soul. Soothing the Soul provides children entering foster care for the first time a duffle bag filled with essential items for their first couple of days in foster care (e.g., a 1 year old’s duffle bag would include diapers, wipes, outfits, a stuff animal, a book, bathing soap, lotion, shampoo and conditioner).
