Breaking the Cycle of Abuse: CARE House of Oakland County Awarded $65,000 Grant from the Children’s Hospital of Michigan Foundation

PONTIAC, Mich. – The Children’s Hospital of Michigan Foundation awarded CARE House of Oakland County a $65,000 grant for its Breaking the Cycle of Abuse program – which currently serves more than 7,000 individuals annually.

Grant funding will enable CARE House to create two new positions, including a full-time Director of Community Education and part-time community outreach facilitator to develop, coordinate and facilitate new prevention programs. Additionally, the Community Education Director will serve as a liaison with community organizations, hospitals, schools and service agencies to foster ongoing prevention trainings.

“Our partnership with the Children’s Hospital of Michigan Foundation advances our vision to impact the safety of every child in Oakland County,” said Blythe Spitsbergen, executive director, CARE House. “Through our child abuse prevention programs, we work to make that vision closer to reality by cultivating a proactive community.”

With additional support from the Children’s Hospital of Michigan Foundation, CARE House’s goal is to increase the number of individuals served by its Breaking the Cycle of Abuse program to 10,000 by fall 2019.

Every year the Children’s Hospital of Michigan Foundation awards new funding to a carefully selected group of applicants whose work supports the Foundation’s Three Pillars (Community Benefit, Pediatric Research and Medical Education) and Five Focus Areas (Nutritional Wellness, Abuse & Neglect, Injury Prevention, Mental Health and Oncology/Cardiology).

Superhero with pinwheel 3

Every day at CARE House, we see some of the bravest children in the world. They have seen some of the worst of what human behavior has to offer, but they continually strive forward to persevere against the trauma inflicted upon them. These children are our heroes.

And so are the people who support their recovery. When you choose to make a donation to CARE House, you're not only helping to treat victims of child sexual abuse or children in foster care. You're helping to secure a future where no child has to fear the harm of abuse and neglect.

Superhero Squad

We were inspired to start our Superhero Squad by a therapy client who patrolled our offices in a Batman mask to make sure there were no bad guys around before starting his weekly therapy session. You can help be a superhero for the kids who come to CARE House by becoming a monthly donor. Monthly donations are an easy way to ensure that the kids who come to CARE House have consistent and reliable support to achieve the great things they aspire to. It’s a great way to leave a huge impact on the children in your community at any giving amount.

"I support CARE House because it is a local organization in which I know does amazing work to positively impact the lives of many children. Setting up monthly reoccurring donations was the best and most efficient way for me to ensure I offer continued support." - current monthly donor

Every child who has to come to CARE House has the superhero potential within them. Your continual support is the crucial step to unlocking that potential, leading to a safer future for all children in our community.
