The Susie Q’s Kids, Inc. Foundation is the primary provider for BFOM’s emergency comfort bags that are distributed to  DHHS, Adoption Agencies, community resource centers, churches and other groups that serve the needs of foster, abused, neglected, and  institutionalized youth.  Each of these institutions have seen significant increased needs in the their respective areas of community service.  We are extremely fortunate to have Susie Q’s Kids, Inc. on our team.

Sponsor This Month’s Featured Bag

This month’s featured bag is for Big Family of Michigan serving the needs of Michigan’s foster children, teens and young adults through various outreach programs and initiatives.

Their mission is to “Embrace a child, change the present, and secure the future”.  They are making a difference every day in the lives of foster children.  Your contributions will help fund their programs which lead them toward their ultimate goal—”putting smiles on the faces and in the hearts of the children who are all too often forgotten when it comes to things like birthdays, holidays, continuing education, setting up that first living space after aging out of the system and more”.

How do we help those in the Foster Care system?  “One Bag at a Time”

Child’s Comfort Bag

Child bags offer children comfort when displaced from their home, set in new surroundings, and unsure of their futures. 

We wish all children and young adults were happy and healthy, our hope is that receiving a Susie Q Comfort Bag will brighten their day, give them some peace and hope, and help make a difference in their outlook on the present and the future.

Imagine the smile on a child’s face that has a bag of goodies to keep them busy, to let them know others care, to provide them hope and inspiration, and to let them know others care and believe in them!
