Safety Bears 4 Kids is a faith-based compassion mission making a difference in the lives of abused and neglected children in Hillsborough County by the gift of a handmade teddy bear.  Our purpose is to bring hope and comfort to children in crisis. Every day  face frightening and hurtful situations.

“Parents and caregivers cope with everyday stressors by numbing their minds and leaving the children with no one to turn to, care for them, protect them or love and support them.  Child abuse is often the symptom, and issues like mental health, substance abuse and economic insecurity are the diseases that ravage families from the inside out.” former David Wilkins Secretary Florida Department of Children and Families Winter Newsletter p.5 “Friends of Mary Lee’s House”.

Florida’s statistics of child “maltreatment” abuse and neglect are alarming. In 2015, 14,825 cases of abuse calls were investigated in Hillsborough. 1,435 children were removed from their homes in Hillsborough County. Of that number 818 were under the age of five and 617 were under one.   Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office Child Protective Investigations Statistics
