ADVANCED MACRO CLASS 2014: Grant Application INCOMPLETE OR LATE APPLICATIONS WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED Cover Sheet Organization Name: Lake Cumberland Children’s Advocacy Center Address: 472 South Main Street, P.O. Box 4 City, State, Zip Code: Jamestown, Kentucky, 42629 Contact Person and Title: Loretta Coppage, Executive Director Telephone: (270) 343-6922 Fax: (270) 343-6006 Email: [email protected] Proposal/Project Title: “Strong Families, Safe Children” Total Organization Budget for 2013: $281,659 Requested grant amount: $2,105.99 The Lake Cumberland Children’s Advocacy Center provides comprehensive services to children that have been sexually abused and their non-offending family members or caregivers. In 2013, the advocacy center provided services to 317 children in the ten counties served. Currently, the Lake Cumberland Children’s Advocacy Center provides no family support or education outside of referrals for mental health, court advocacy, or case management services for the child’s needs. This proposal is for a new program that will be provided by the advocacy center, “Strong Families, Safe Children.” This program will be for both parents and children and will work to build stronger families in our communities through support, education, and improved communication for at-risk families. The program “Strong Families, Safe Children” will include the Nurturing Families curriculum “Parents and Their School-Aged Children 5-11 Years.” The focus of this curriculum is to treat and prevent child abuse and neglect. Program activities will allow the children and their non-offending caregivers to engage with one another through discussion, play, and art activities in a safe and nurturing environment. Two facilitators trained by the Nurturing Families organization will lead the program. This curriculum will enable the advocacy center to provide education and support to families seen at the center in addition to the services already provided.

Narrative 1. Need for Assistance The Lake Cumberland Children’s Advocacy Center (LCCAC) provides comprehensive services to child survivors of sexual abuse and their non-offending family members or caretakers in ten counties in south central Kentucky. In 2013, the Lake Cumberland Children’s Advocacy Center provided services to 317 children. Of those children, 82% were 12 and younger. The Kentucky Association of Children’s Advocacy Centers (2014) estimates that in the state of Kentucky, 6,096 children received services at Children’s Advocacy Centers. Of those 6,096 children served, 80% were involved in sexual abuse cases, 32% were between the ages of 0 and 5 years old, and 30% were male (KACAC, 2014). Child sexual abuse impacts children and families of all races, socioeconomic statuses, religions, and neighborhoods. Family factors that increase the likelihood that child sexual abuse will occur include single-parent homes, the presence of a stepfather or a mother’s boyfriend in the home, conflicts between parents, family circumstances or adversity, and parental substance use (Collin-Vezina et al., 2013).

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
