Volunteers make BEAR possible!

BEAR provides a variety of volunteering opportunities for individuals and groups. If one of the opportunities isn’t exactly right for you, contact us and we’ll work together to find something that is.

There is always a way to get involved in helping the abused and neglected children we serve. We have a variety of opportunities for individuals, families and groups to volunteer, from one-time events to regularly scheduled volunteer hours. If you are looking for a specific way to help, see the current opportunities listed on this page. We are always open to your ideas and suggestions!
