Educating Communities to Prevent Child Abuse
The Green Bear Project was founded in 2001 with a mission to educate the community about child abuse. Over the past 20 years, Green Bear has educated thousands of adults and kids about the dangers, warning signs and prevention of child abuse through our various programs. We offer classes in Bollinger, Cape Girardeau, Dunklin, Mississippi, New Madrid, Pemiscot, Perry, Scott, and Stoddard counties.
The Green Bear Story
The Green Bear Project was founded in memory of Baby Ty, a little boy who died as a result of abuse. The project’s primary mission is to develop child abuse prevention programs to take into local schools and communities to educate children, parents, teachers, other professionals, and community members.
