What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Emotional Counseling

We believe that providing an outlet for officers and their families is important--so important that it is the crux of what we do. By hosting family-friendly events, outings and special occasions, we provide an environment outside of work where officers, their spouses, and their families can build relationships with other like-minded people, showing them they're not alone.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

​The Blue Bow Foundation, Inc., is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit public charity that provides ongoing emotional and financial support to police officers and their families. We want to let officers and their families know that help is always there if and when they need it.

Once again, The Blue Bow Foundation, Inc., delivered on its mission of providing ongoing emotional and financial support to police officers and their families. Last year was yet another amazing one, with events like our “Skeet N’ Heat” Sporting Clays Tournament, Crawfish Boil & Cornhole Tournament, and annual Blue Plate Dinner all growing in attendance!

We also launched our annual and lifetime memberships and watched bows go up all over the Greater Houston Area and beyond! We were deeply touched by our blessed interaction with the Roman and Davis families, and we aim to continue our mission of supporting them.
Our supporters stepped up to help officers in need, and our amazing bond with the National Charity League’s Cypress Gems proved invaluable! And who could forget legendary news anchor and Houston icon Dave Ward’s talk at our 4th Annual Blue Plate Dinner?
