Bear Essentials Program


"Children's Health Foundation of Vancouver Island supports families who face unexpected or extraordinary expenses related to their children's health issues or disabilities with funding. The Bear Essentials program will cover travel expenses, medical equipment or other specialized supports for a child with special needs. If a family has an urgent need and they cannot access support elsewhere, they can apply for a grant to cover expenses up to $1,000." [Website]
