Short Business Description:
BEAR provides hope and help to children involved with CPS in Harris and the surrounding counties with resources such as diapers, clothes, shoes, toiletries, etc.
Long Business Description:

BEAR is the only 501(c)(3) organization working with Harris County CPS and the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services that offers unique programs – that provide not only the basic needs of children recently uprooted, but also supportive services that provide comfort, dignity, and celebration of successes that propel the child toward a successful future – for abused and neglected children. This partnership with the county and state is vital to BEAR’s success as an organization, allowing $0.85 of every dollar earned through fundraising efforts to go back to effectively operating four core programs. Additionally, the growing need for BEAR’s services is clearly evident by the fact that in the 24 years since inception, BEAR has grown from an annual operating budget of $7,000 to one of over $1.5M
