With great effort from Hope For Three’s volunteer Mare Solcher and Deputy Nick Kaminski of the Fort Bend County Precinct 1 Constables Office, Hope For Three is helping to make things bearable for children in crisis.

Solcher, who chairs the project, recently presented homemade blankets, entertaining toys and soft, comforting bears to the Precinct 1 Constables Office. Deputy Kaminski, who is a certified Mental Health Peace Officer, stated, “Oftentimes, when arriving on a chaotic scene where children are involved, having a cuddly bear or some type of toy on hand brings comfort to the child.”

The project is part of Hope for Three Autism Advocates’ Crisis Intervention Team (CIT) partnership with the Fort Bend County Sheriff’s Office. The CIT program seeks to bridge the gap between police response and mental health care by forming a partnership with behavioral health and human services professionals, consumers, their families and law enforcement. Donations are given to all children, including those with unique abilities.
