Project Funded: Home of the Innocents is using the grant money to improve its Southern Indiana office to serve more at-risk children and families in the area. The nonprofit is training its therapists in evidence-based practices to help create more stable home lives for families, upgrading its IT infrastructure to provide efficient record keeping and service delivery, and replacing office furniture with "family and sensory-friendly furnishings."
The nonprofit hopes to make a difference in addressing issues of child abuse and trauma within the Southern Indiana community. Home of the Innocents' New Albany office offers services such as family preservation services, assistance in reunifying families, and teaching life skills to parents and families.
