Introducing E.P. Worth!
Epworth brings comfort to foster children with Build-A-Bear furry friends
Entering foster care is difficult for any child. It is often a time of confusion and sadness. Children typically do not leave home with all of their belongings and the items they do travel with are sometimes lost or misplaced at the time of removal or during placement changes.
Research shows that a stuffed animal can be an alternative support during transition. The comfort that comes from loving a stuffed bear can promote a safe environment in which a scared, lost or hurt child is more likely to open up and feel safe again. Many children will benefit from the comfort of having their own bear.
Bring comfort to a foster child by giving them the official E.P. Worth teddy bear!
