BE A Resource Supply Drive

HCFCU’s Guiding Coalition has focused its community involvement on increasing awareness of the BARE necessities for children in the BEAR program. BE A Resource helps supply Harris County children under the care of CPS with many basic needs. Our Guiding Coalition wants to help highlight these needs and work to increase attention to this worthwhile cause.

BEAR Necessities operates two main BEAR rooms in Harris County. Both provide emergency supplies all year round for children who are under the supervision of Child Protective Services (CPS). BEAR Necessities offers clothing, shoes, diapers, car seats, air mattresses and more to meet the immediate needs of children. Last year alone, BEAR provided over 23,000 children with resources through this program. BEAR’s goal is to provide comfort children during uncertain times.

Each month, BEAR Rooms provide approximately 1,000 abused and neglected children with essential items. CPS caseworkers have access to a 24 hour BEAR room with other remaining open Monday through Friday from 9AM-3:00PM and each item is at no cost to the families.

Sometimes, the difference between a child who goes to school and one who doesn’t is a pair of shoes, a notebook and pencil. Sometimes, the difference between an infant who is healthy and one who isn’t is formula, clean diapers, lotions and powders — BEAR ensures that these children will not have to go another day without things that we all take for granted.
