Bear Essentials

The Bear Essentials program powered by the Children’s Health Foundation of Vancouver Island and Help Fill A Dream may cover medical equipment or other specialized supports for a child with special health needs if a family has an urgent need and cannot access other support for these items.

YANA is a referring agency for the Bear Essentials program.  You can access application forms from YANA and we work with families to ensure applications are completed appropriately and forwarded to our partners for consideration.
