A huge thank you to all who came out to support CPCAN -- and 
enjoy a laugh-filled evening at our successful spring fundraiser, “Humor for the House with a Heart.” 

Detroit-based comedian Billy Ray Bauer headlined the event, which was held in the beautiful Jackson College Potter Dining Hall. 

A special thank you to our sponsors:
Gerdau Special Steel, CP Federal Credit Union, Rehmann Group, Art Moehn Auto Group, Vandercook Lake Lions Club, Rosalyn Anderson, County National Bank, Walton Agency, Blackman Animal Clinic, Chelsea Milling Company and in-kind donors Grand River Marketplace, Jackson College, Dawn Foods, and Jackson Coffee Company. 

As we say, again and again, “It takes a community to prevent child abuse and neglect.”

Professional Training
Childhood Trauma Addressed

Early childhood traumatic experiences can have life-long repercussions if not addressed properly. 

The CPCAN coordinated a
full day of training focused on the latest science and effective treatment for young victims of trauma and early childhood neglect. Almost 50 educators, counselors and others attended an outstanding professional training event in April presented by Sarah Slammer, of the National Institute for Trauma and Loss (TLC). Ms. Slammer led two interactive sessions, filled with hands-on, productive strategies for identifying and responding to children of trauma. 

The session was offered through a partnership of CPCAN, TLC and the Starr Global Learning Network, and the Jackson County ISD, and was sponsored by the Exchange Club of Jackson. 

Participants also took advantage of a concurrent Stewards of Children training focused on how adults can recognize, prevent, and respond to childhood sexual abuse.
