3 min read

LAFAYETTE, Ind. — If you run a nonprofit that aims to prevent child abuse or neglect in the Greater Lafayette area, including several nearby counties, The Bauer Family Resources Community Partners welcomes your application for grant funding.

A wide range of missions, such as food insecurity, could also garner funding.

If your nonprofit’s mission helps the general community, also take note.

The Lafayette organization announced this past week such an opportunity for eligible applicants that provide either primary or secondary prevention programs aimed at helping the community.

As defined, primary prevention programs provide support for the general public, while secondary prevention programs provide target support for individuals who are at risk of abuse or neglect of a child.

“This proposal is going to help support our community in preventing child abuse and neglect while also creating a network of organizations to work together in that effort,” said Tristen Comegys, CEO of Bauer Family Resources Community Partners.

For this year’s round of grants, Community Partners identified six types of services that are greatly needed within the Department of Child Services Fifth Region — Carroll, Clinton, Fountain, Tippecanoe, Warren and White counties.
