On Wednesday, May 27th, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Elkhart County was one of a dozen agencies which came together to kick off the Partnership for Children.
This new initiative aimed at reaching at-risk youth includes 12 youth-serving agencies throughout the county, and is being funded through a $250,000 Key Initiative grant from the Elkhart County Community Foundation.
The Partnership for Children will positively affect Elkhart County youth in three distinct ways First, staff and volunteers at each agency will receive common training to better equip them to handle behavioral and emotional challenges youth may face. Second, the grant will fund hiring mental health professionals to serve youth at all of the agencies using a wraparound model that surrounds youth and families with formal and informal supports. Third, all of the partner agencies will have better access to mental health expertise, which can be provided in a community-based setting where families are most comfortable.
Big Brothers Big Sisters of Elkhart County is excited and honored to be a part of the Partnership for Children, and look forward to being able to better serve the children in our program. Other partners include:
