Love Bears All – a program of outreach for children who have lost a parent or family member to an overdose. We launched our first project in November of 2017 with a “Love Bears All” teddy bear program to comfort children who lost a loved one to addiction. Our bears are distributed via police departments and other first responders in Summit County. Each teddy bear is hand-stuffed with love by individuals directly impacted by the addiction epidemic and dressed in a “Love Bears All” t-shirt. A hand-written note and brochure with recommended resources to help children cope are also included. Hope United understands what it’s like to live with, and ultimately, lose a loved one to addiction. Contact us to learn more.
Resources for children
Although New Destiny does not currently offer resources directly for children of individuals facing addiction, there are community resources available. The following are just a few of the resources available:
Sesame Street in Communities – Sesame Street in Communities builds on our almost 50-year commitment to caring for the developmental, physical, and emotional needs of children. Thoroughly researched and tested with families, these resources are proven to make a measurable difference for kids, and make your job as a parent a little bit easier.
