Caring For Children was established in 1985 to fill a serious gap in services to children in crisis. Although many human serviceagencies  address the basic survival needs of distressed children, none has sufficient resources or mandate to focus on the youngster’s considerable emotional and psychological needs necessary to help them cope with the deprivation and trauma of their daily lives.  Our signature program is the "Teddy Bear Trauma Reduction Project" which gives desperate children something to hold on to when they are sad, lonely or afraid.
 
In addition to providing direct emotional support to youngsters living in difficult circumstances, Caring for Children (CFC) offers technical support to front-line agencies, and educates the public
to
the importance of preparing psychologically healthy children for future generations.

"Syrian refugee children get 5,000 teddy bears, thanks to SF woman"


“The teddy bear gives the child something to hold onto when there is no adult around to help them process their emotions — when you’re sad, lonely or
afraid, when you’re not getting cuddled by your parents, when you’re by yourself.”
–Samantha Grier, Founder and President
