Mama Bear Clan is a community safety initiative that was created by NPDWC’s Women’s Warrior Circle. In 2016 a group of mothers, grandmothers, sisters and aunts decided that safety is something that is fostered through relationship: within ourselves, our home, and in the community. Sometimes all people need to feel safe is knowing someone cares about them. We patrol North Point Douglas and Main Street three days a week – rain or shine, summer or winter. We are committed to promoting safety and reducing violence by being a positive, loving, and compassionate presence in the community. We make sure everyone in the community is safe – whether that means walking people home or to the bus stop, picking up sharps, calling emergency services if needed, or even just praying with someone or giving them a hug. Whenever possible, Mama Bear Clan provides basic first aid as well as donations of food, water, clothing, and hygiene items to people in need.
