Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Human Service Organizations

Mission: The purpose of the sanilac county kids' connection is to work together to build better lives for children and families. The sanilac county kids' connection will undertake this by providing a single point of entry for charitable services to childern including health care, education, counseling protective services and other charitable services primarily to poor children. The sanilac county kids' connection will undertake this in coordination with other governmental, non-profits and health providers.

Programs: Single point of entry for families to access resources and referral. The building technology system was updated, radio spots were recorded and pamphlets were distributed to educate the community about the service, and we have obtained a toll free number to access the system. Useage of the system continues to increase. This system is an access point for families to our "referral teams" and "family connection teams".

referral and family connective teams: these teams work with families with multiple needs and provide access to help from different agencies or health care systems without the family being required to meet many times and in different locations. These teams were developed from the ground floor during the first year of the sckc. An average of ten collaborative partner agencies participate with each case family. The referral team meets with the family upon the family's request or just as the team to address referrals from agencies. The family connection teams work with families to address the needs and help action plans from the referral team and monitor progress.

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 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.

The staff of Kids Connection are dedicated and work countless hours often times without pay in order to get the needs of children met. The are advocatesof many children who otherwise would have no voice.
