2,000+ Blankets Distributed at PCSAO Conference
We were excited to greet caseworkers and supervisors from all 88 Ohio counties at the Public Children Services Association of Ohio (PCSAO) annual conference, "As Our World Turns" in September.

We are grateful for all the volunteers like these who staffed our table during the 3-day conference and distributed 2,149 blankets to caseworkers and agencies to give to children living in foster care all over the state of Ohio.
And a special thank you to our volunteers who stored and transported bags of blankets to the hotel in preparation for the Conference.
Our 2022 goal: Blankets for 30,000 Children in Foster Care

Together we can do it, one blanket at a time!

My Very Own Blanket brings love, comfort and hope to children in foster care. Here's how you can help!

  • Drop off your finished blankets in the 24-hour curbside bin outside our workshop.

See Jessica on the Fostering Change Podcast 

Hear Jessica tell the story of the founding of MVOB, the evolution of the special tags, the plans MVOB has to expand into other countries and how people across the U.S. can get involved in our mission.

Fostering Change is sponsored by Comfort Cases, dedicated to providing a backpack or duffle bag filled with essential and comfort items to every child entering foster care.
