On behalf of the Harvey County Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault Task Force, we would like to thank the Central Kansas Community Foundation for the 2014 Central Kansas Kids FUNd grant award.

This grant award will provide continued support for our Children’s Advocacy focusing on "Building Better Lives for Children and Youth"; we are currently working with 130 families in Harvey County and the requested funds will provide needed supplies, equipment and furniture to support our services for children we serve for projects, such as our Kid’s Group, and living space at our shelter, which focus on "building better lives and resiliency for children".

The funds will continue our efforts to implement and deliver primary prevention on healthy relationship curricula and dating violence awareness in area schools and communities. Projects will include continued collaboration projects with area schools and community.

The financial support of the 2014 Central Kansas Kids FUNd will directly impact the children and youth in this community by providing opportunities to develop skills that encourage healthy relationships and create an atmosphere of support and encouragement.
