Once the youth in CPS care age out of the system most of them have little to no support and have to face adulthood all alone. BEAR helps youth get started on their journey as they transition into adulthood. Whether going to college or getting their very first apartment, our generous donors help make it happen.
You can help by sponsoring a specific graduating student and by donating funds to help BEAR purchase items that graduating students often need.
