Resources & News

September is Safe Sleep for Infants Month! Help us keep our littlest community members safe by making sure your baby has a safe place to sleep, for naps and at night. A firm, flat sleep area is safest for infants. Use a crib, bassinet, portable crib, or play yard. The mattress should be covered by a tightly fitted sheet with no other bedding or soft items in the sleep area. To find out more about Safe Sleep, please plan to attend one of our Safe Baby trainings Click Here

 

what we do

As the Michigan Children's Trust Fund's designated agency for the prevention of child abuse and neglect for Washtenaw County, we're in the business of ending victimization before it happens. We offer educational services and programs to all walks of life in our community; children, teens, parents, community members, and youth-serving professionals throughout Washtenaw County are our partners in the journey toward a safer tomorrow. Do our programs speak to you? Do they meet the goals of your mission toward a safer tomorrow for our kids? Want to help educate folks in your community? We can help!

These realities are grim, but they don't have to be the truth forever. Washtenaw Area Council for Children is addressing these problems head on - fighting for the safety of all children. Help us out. There are many things you can do to make a difference in the lives of our children. See our program list below to learn how we're keeping kids and teens safe every day.
