This program supports families who have expenses related to their children’s health need or disability. Bear Essentials will cover travel expenses, medical equipment or other specialized supports for a child with special needs. If a family has an urgent need and cannot access support elsewhere, they may be eligible for a grant to cover expenses up to $1,000.
Referrals to the program are accepted from health professionals working with Island Health or one of the Foundation’s qualified community partners. For more information on how to apply please contact:
