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!
