The Roscommon County Community Foundation (RCCF) recently provided a $1,725.00 grant to the Northern Michigan Children’s Assessment Center to purchase materials needed for their “Body Safety” program. Grant funding was provided by the Roscommon County Kellogg Youth Fund ($925), Marilyn Brown Memorial Fund ($260), Roscommon County General Fund ($100), and the Roscommon County Tobacco Settlement Fund ($440).

With the funding granted, NMCAC purchased body safety coloring books, books about body safety for parents to read to their children, and a parent brochure that provides guidance to parents on the topic of sexual abuse. NMCAC also purchased a banner and bracelets to use at outreach events, such as St. Helen’s National Night Out.
