Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Human Service Organizations, Human Services

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.

safe kids, outreach, child abuse prevention, mentoring, counseling, etc.

The Sanilac County Kids' Connection is a needs-based service organization conceived, facilitated, and staffed by incredibly altruistic people whose sole intent is to aid children and families in our region. They always go way above and beyond the call of duty to serve the public in our area. The staff is professional yet truly caring and dedicated.

I have directly observed the operation of one facet of the Kids' Connection on numerous occasions, the Sanilac Baby Pantry. It is heartwarming to witness as the staff and volunteers provide material and inspirational support to the young families who are the clients. It is especially nice to see the gratitude on the faces of the recipients of the Baby Pantry services as their basic needs are met. This is an amazing service that has supported many, many needy families.

This outfit is a scam money maker for the executive director to get herself free trips,food and other goodies. She partners with her husband and friends to take what little money the people in this poor rural county make. They use the money to keep their friends in the printing and advertising business in the money. They smirk in their photos because they are proud of themselves at the way they manipulate the people. They believe these honest, hard working ,little educated people, are easy to take advantage of!
