SEATTLE, Aug. 15, 2012  — CFO Selections joins as a critical community partner supporting Multimedia Seattle’s Children’s “A Bear for Me?” Program. The “A Bear for Me?” Program provides local outreach to the youngest survivors of domestic violence in our community.

Filling a critical need, Multimedia Seattle implemented the Children’s “A Bear for Me?”  Program as an additional community service provided through Multimedia Seattle’s Western Washington Domestic Violence Prevention and Outreach Program. Infant and Toddler Domestic Violence Shelter Arrival Bags are provided to vulnerable children entering regional Emergency Domestic Violence Shelters with their mothers.

Multimedia Seattle’s Children’s “A Bear for Me?” Program provides necessary personal items for infants and toddlers as they are entering Emergency Domestic Violence Shelters. Infant and Toddler Emergency Domestic Violence Shelter Arrival Bags  include diapers, baby wipes, a soft new baby blanket, a new pacifier and a beautiful new teddy bear to hold. Items that will help comfort the children during a very vulnerable and traumatizing period in their lives and help remind the children and their mothers that they are cared for.

The mission of Multimedia Seattle’s Western Washington Domestic Violence Prevention and Outreach Program are to:

Reduce infant and childhood mortality by physical violence and neglect
Reduce homicide deaths by violence against women
Reduce generational recurrences of violence against women and children
