Bear Foundation supports our families here in Flagler County individually and by supporting groups such as

The Family Life Center (our domestic abuse shelter), Project WARM in Bunnell (Women Assisting

Recovering Mothers), The foundation donated small teddy bears to Flagler County Sheriff’s office to keep in their patrol cars in case a child needs a soother. The Foundation supports many other organizations as well. To date, just over $66,000 has been shared back into the community.

In 2019 TAG grew in the direction of Community Association Management.  Over the past few years, Kathy has managed an association through the pains of deferred maintenance.  She’s walked with them through multiple major projects – new roofs, pool yard paver projects, pavement concerns, plumbing replacements, new balconies, and column replacements in addition to managing their budget, handling all invoices & and payments, meetings, etc.  

 

Having watched our community grow over the years and the political climate shift; it’s Kathy’s hope to bring us all together to balance our growth while upholding integrity & and transparency.  Building the relationships between the city and all of our residents is vital to maintaining a harmonious, growing community.
