New Foster Kids - Stark County Ohio
There are approximately 415,000 children in the foster system across the United States on any given day. More than 12,500 of those children are in Ohio.
Entering foster care is a scary experience for children regardless of their age.
Orphan World Relief sees this as an opportunity to provide comfort, dignity and love to these kids. With your support, we provide backpacks - My Comfy Kits - filled with age-appropriate items to help ease the pain of transition.
In 2016 we supplied 133 kits to kids
In 2017 we supplied 580 kits to kids
In 2018 we supplied 803 kits to kids!
