The grant will support Braveheart’s mission and provide “Calm and Care bags” to aid in restfulness and sleep for children ages 5 to 17 who have experienced trauma.

“Starved Rock Country Community Foundation is pleased to assist with the good work Braveheart is doing for children and teens,” said SRCCF President and CEO Fran Brolley.

Braveheart finds solutions to better investigate child abuse cases in Henry, Marshall, Putnam, Stark and Bureau counties and strengthens the community’s response to abuse through prevention, intervention, and advocacy. The agency serves from 175 to 200 children each year from offices in Princeton and Cambridge.

Starved Rock Country Community Foundation has distributed over $1.8 million in community investments, grants and scholarships and established more than 100 funds since its founding in 2015. This is the third award Braveheart has received through SRCCF.
