OTSEGO COUNTY- The Women’s Resource Center of Northern Michigan (WRCNM) received a $3,500 grant from the Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan Foundation and a $2,000 grant from the Jeff and Lynne Smetzer Fund of the Otsego Community Foundation (OCF). WRCNM has participated in the OCF Community Grant Program annually to sustain critical services in Otsego County.
The funding ensures continued access to domestic abuse and sexual assault services the agency provides at no cost to adults and children in Otsego County.
WRCNM Executive Director Gail Kloss said, “The grant funding will be helpful in serving the needs of domestic abuse and sexual assault survivors who live in Otsego County and who reach out to us for specialized counseling, advocacy, support, and emergency shelter at the Safe Home.”
“We are grateful for the financial support because the need for these vital services remains persistent,” Kloss said.
