We Give Tangible Hope To Foster Children.
Hope in a Suitcase is a volunteer-driven, nonprofit group benefiting foster children. Our mission is simple. We provide children and teens in foster care with a suitcase, along with basic essentials and comfort items, to make their transition into the foster care system and their circumstances just a little bit easier and more dignified.

No child should have to carry his or her belongings in a trash bag. A personalized suitcase or duffel bag, along with basic essentials and comfort items, sends children entering foster care a message that they are important and cared for by our community.
