I have worked with this organization for a long time. As the co-coordinator for out Safe Kids Program I have worked closely with the director and the entire staff. This organization is a group of greatly motivated individuals who work very hard to improve the community they live and work in. I have seen the staff help hundreds of families with thier only goal is to make life better for the family.

The Safe Kids Greater Thumb & Saginaw Coalition is a part of the Kids Connection. That has helped many families by providing safety education and equipment to families. I have also worked personally with the staff and volunteers. We have helped over 5000 children by checking thier child safety seats and in over 2500 of these we helped by providing the families with a new seat. This oranization has worked for many years strictly off of grants provided to the program. Since its inception the program has provided nearly about $100,000 worth of safety equipment to families. ie:car seats, bike helmets, home safety equipment, smoke alarms, carbon monoxide detectors

The Director Nancy Dean and I both volunteer our time to act as the coordinators for the Safe Kids Program. We both agree it is better to make children safe then to worry about what we could be paid for. We both agree it is all about the kids and for the kids that matters.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I have worked with this program to see thousands of families safer from our programs on safety in many counties. We have done safety events in Sanilac, Tuscola, Saginaw, Bay, Midland, Huron, St. Clair, Iosco, Gladwin, Lake, and Ogemaw Counties.

I would love to see more funding brought into this organization so we can hire someone to assist with programming to make more children safe. I would also like to see funding to continue for our in home specialist. This would allow for more families to be given the chance and education to keep thier families together rather then being put into the foster care system.

The Kids' Conncection is a non-profit organization with the mission to improve the lives of the children in our communities. The employees and volunteers at Kids' Connection work hard to ensure that children from newborn through adolecent and teenagers can find the help they need to become successful adults. This help may be as basic as providing information on local food shelters, to helping new parents get their child's hearing tested, to assisting teenagers who are having emotional difficulties find counseling assistance, to training child care providers in new methods of early childhood education.

The Kids' Connection brings together all of the available resources in our community to make finding help easy.
