What is BEAR?

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.

Why they are Awesome

  • BEAR serves 12,000 CPS children each year through the BEAR Necessities program.
