WHAT WE DO
Every year, more than 2,200 children lose their lives from injuries that happen at home. Our goal is to provide tools and resources to low income families to protect children from harm or injury in the home. We educate families about basic home safety recommendations and guidelines and provide essential equipment.
Action for Child Care currently provides 3 main services to the community:
2018 was our first full year in operation. In that time, we reached 176 families in need with our health and safety equipment and education! We fostered relationships and partnered with 11 human services agencies in Shiawassee, Ingham, and Genessee counties. These partnerships allowed us to make a lasting impression on the communities we served throughout the year.
We could not have reached the number of homes we did in 2018 without the generous support of our donors, partners, and volunteers.
