Resources & News

Safe Sleep for Infants If traveling to celebrate the holidays with friends and family, make 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. Inflatable air mattresses can be a deadly danger. Arrange for a safe sleep space at hotels and at your final destination.

 

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!
