Background and Discussion:
Harris County Resources provides support to children and caregivers through the BE A Resource for CPS kids program (BEAR). This program was launched in 1996 as a public/private partnership between Harris County and the BEAR Board' a non-profit board that fundraises and advocates for the BEAR Program. DFPS recently opened a Faith Based and Community Engagement Department. The MOU is necessary to outline the way in which these two entities will collaborate and avoid duplication of services and resources.
Fiscal Impact:
There are no expenses directly associated with this MOU. The BEAR Program has four full time FTE's that are funded through the Harris County Resources for Children and Adults general fund budget allocation. The program receives additional funds for resources and services from the BEAR Board. The positions and funding for this program are not impacted by this request.
