Orlando, FL, Wednesday, April 10, 2019 – Images of Glory has received two grants totaling $99,536.90, for the next two years from the Orange County Citizens Commission for Children. The purpose of the grants is to provide counseling, case management, and supportive services to at-risk youth and their families. The award is part of the new initiative of Orange County Mayor Jerry Demmings to put children first.
Unfortunately, most victimized members of our human family are our children.
Images of Glory believes that it is everyone’s responsibility to participate in educating, healing and protecting victims of sexual trauma and abuse. There are things that you can do to help victims mend and identify children who are in danger.
With this grant, IOG intends to serve at least 100 youth and their families during the two years within the Orange County area. There are no eligibility requirements other than they have a need and are uninsured or underinsured. IOG will offer specific services such as individual and family counseling, parenting training/workshops, youth violence prevention workshops, and social support services including referrals to other agencies.
These are tough times. Help make them easier for everyone at risk: report suspected trauma and abuse and support those organizations in your community that put children first. Educating and assisting youth is everyone’s job.
