Welcome! A Case for Dignity is an organization that gathers
bags and basic neccessities for children transitioning into foster care in the Commonwealth of Kentucky.  Thank you for stopping by and thank you for helping us show the foster children of Kentucky that they are important to us!
To contact us: please email Noah at

Please see below for answers to frequently asked questions.


What type of Bags do you need?
We are looking to provide the foster children proper pieces of luggage to use to move their belongings. We realize caseworkers and police officials can not carry large suitcases in their vehicles so we encourage large backpacks and duffle bags. We prefer new bags, but will accept gently used bags that have no names or markings on them.

What is a Bag Raising?
A Bag Raising is like a fund raiser, but instead you are collecting bags. We are happy to help you host a fund raiser by providing you invitations, information and suggestions for a successful event. You can have a formal event or you can simply send an email to friends and family asking them to donate bags. Contact Noah at acasefordignity@gmail.com for more specific information.

Where do the bags go?
We deliver all the bags we collect to the the Permanency and Placement offices in our area. The caseworkers use the bags for children who are transitioning into care.

Do you accept cash donations?
At this time we do not. We are not a 501c organization. We will however accept bags and the items that are used to stuff them.

Can Noah speak at my Bag Raising?
Noah loves to share his vision of no Kentucky foster child using trashbags as they transition into foster care. Contact him at acasefordignity@gmail.com do see if he is available for your event.
