Comfort the Courageous Bear invites you to learn more about us!
No More C.R.A.P. is a 501c3 organization (status pending) based in Minnesota that is dedicated to fulfilling its mission through dynamic programming responsive to the needs of diverse communities. Although our volunteer efforts and inception year is 2006, the official launch as a an organization began in 2011. What started out as a simple way to help provide healing to abused and kidnapped children is being transformed into a non-profit organization.
According to the United States Accountability Office, approximately five children die each day as a result of child abuse. On a national scale, more than 3 million child abuse cases are reported (U.S. Dept. of Health and Human Services). The Bureau of Justice Statistics reports an alarming growth rate in kidnapping cases each year as well. Approximately every 11 minutes, someone dies of suicide (CDC) and the stigma of suicide being minimally absent in the minority community continues to rise. This is simply not acceptable.
In October 2019, our executive director suffered the loss of her 18 year old son Giovanni. This tragic event has morphed into expounding our existing mission with the inclusion of preventing suicide within minority families.
No More C.R.A.P. seeks to end the cycle of suicide, child abuse, and kidnapping. The emotional, mental, and physical scars associated with each of these atrocities are painful. By helping one child at a time, the path to strengthening and restoring the family bond is cultivated.
Mission: To strengthen minority families by preventing suicide, child abuse, and kidnapping.
Vision: To be the leading organization providing services that decrease suicide, child abuse, and kidnapping while promote healthy parenting; alternative discipline methods; and cultivating strong families.
Thank you for taking a moment to dive into topics that affect all of us. Let's learn and grow together while advocating to end the epidemics of suicide, child abuse, and kidnapping.
Your support and contributions will enable us to meet our goals and improve conditions. Your generous donation will fund our mission.
We are thankful for all of you!
