Chili Bowl Classic to Help Cleveland Police Foundation Cops for Kids

The Cleveland Cops For Kids’ mission is to establish and strengthen relationships between police officers and Cleveland’s kids. This program allows officers who encounter children who are victims of crime, abuse, neglect or other traumatic situations to respond not only with compassion and concern for their welfare, but also provides the means necessary to support timely aid and assistance, such as food, clothing, gifts, and other care.

The Cleveland Police Foundation funds youth and community outreach programs, community policing initiatives, crime prevention and safety programs, police charities, support for the members of the Division of Police to help them better perform their duties, investment in advanced education and training, and funding for specialized equipment and technology.

The Foundation supports programs such as Cops for Kids and the annual handgun and assault weapon buyback among many others.
