Teddy Bear Rooms / Adoptions

We dedicate much of our time to establishing “teddy bear” rooms in District Attorneys’ and Child Protective Services’ offices throughout California — giving young victims and children of victims a safe haven during the long and often painful criminal justice process.

In addition to the teddy bear rooms, Crime Victims United also hosts small celebratory parties for children adopted through the the city and county of San Francisco. Each child receives a stuffed bear.

Crime Victims United offers the teddy bear programs to all state and county facilities and organizations.
