Caring Cubs will be holding simultaneous service projects at the Fairview Park and South Euclid-Lyndhurst branches of the Cuyahoga County Library to benefit Bellefaire JCB.
Our Caring Cubs parents and children will learn about Bellefaire JCB’s Homeless and Missing Youth Program and services offered in an age appropriate manner. We will be making toiletry bags for the youth as well as scarves to help them stay warm during Cleveland’s cold winters. Caring Cub participants will also create cards to place in the toiletry bags to let the youth know people care.
Caring Cubs will be collecting toiletry items at this event. Please bring any travel size toiletry items you may have. Items most needed are soap, shampoo and conditioner, toothbrushes, toothpaste, combs, hand sanitizer, travel tissues, etc.
Bellefaire JCB is among the nation’s largest, most experienced child service agencies providing a variety of behavioral health, substance abuse, education and prevention services. Bellefaire JCB helps more than 21,700 youth and their families yearly achieve resiliency, dignity and self-sufficiency through its more than 25 programs. Bellefaire JCB’s Homeless and Missing Youth Program was initiated in October 2006 through a grant from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services to establish a program for homeless, missing, and runaway youth. The program served over 3,800 teens, families and community members this past year through street outreach, respite care, a drop-in center, community outreach and education, and the 24-hour hotline. Through education, Bellefaire JCB’s Homeless Youth program is committed to preventing youth from leaving home and homelessness among youth.
