BEAR Graduation Celebration

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.

The date for the 2019 Graduation Celebration is June 8, 2019! Please contact BEAR staff if you are interested in participating as a sponsor or volunteer!

Sponsor a Child

Be a part of a child’s transition by supplying necessary items they are requesting as they embark on the next phase of their journey.  For those who sponsor a child, you will receive a wish list with a short bio explaining your child’s goals and accomplishments.  Generally, donors spend about $100-$150 purchasing items on the wish lists with others going above and beyond!  To sponsor a child email! If you would like to purchase commonly requested items using our Amazon Wish List and sponsor a graduate that way, simply visit this link!


You can help by sponsoring a specific graduating student and by donating funds to help BEAR purchase items that graduating students often need.
