Episode 86: BEAR – Providing Hope and Help for CPS-involved children

Join us on this week’s episode of Spotlight Houston as we shine a light on a heartwarming mission. Our host, Blanca Quezada, talks with Rebecca Moran, outreach coordinator at BEAR … Be A Resource. This unique nonprofit is the sole nonprofit collaborator with the Texas Department of Protective Services (CPS) in Harris County, offering hope and hands-on help to over 16,000 children and teens involved in CPS annually.

Discover how BEAR steps in when children are suddenly removed from their homes due to emergencies, providing everything from essentials like clothing and school supplies to the gift of joy during the holiday season.

Rebecca shares insights on the organization’s crucial programs, including BEAR Necessities, BEARing Gifts, BEAR Back to School, and Heart Gallery of Greater Houston. These initiatives ensure that every child and teen receives the comfort and dignity they deserve despite facing challenging circumstances.

BEAR’s annual Clays for Kids event is right around the corner! 2024’s event is scheduled for Thursday, May 16th, at the Greater Houston Sports Club. For more information, visit https://bearesourcehouston.org/events/bear-clays-for-kids/.
