Juliette's House gets $250,000 in grants
Juliette's House, the McMinnville-based child abuse intervention center that serves all of Yamhill County, received more than $250,000 in grants this month from a pair of foundations.
The Ford Family Foundation meted a $210,769 grant to Juliette's House for "Prevention Arc," a child abuse prevention education program that includes "Safer, Smarter Kids," which are in-school workshops for kids age 3 to 6; "Safe Kids," workshops for K-5 kids; "Speak Up!" workshops for middle school students; "Safe Touch," workshops for families impacted by unsafe touch; and "Darkness to Light," a program of prevention education for adults.
Juliette's House also received a $40,000 grant for Prevention Arc from the Spirit Mountain Community Fund, a charitable foundation of The Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde that gives monetary support to nonprofit organizations in an 11-county area of western Oregon.
Juliette's House, according to a press release, performs medical and forensic assessments of children in Yamhill, Polk and Tillamook counties that are referred to it by Child Protective Services and law enforcement when child abuse is suspected. It offers treatment referrals, family support groups, referrals to community resources and follow-up support, as well as the education programs.
