Billboard Campaign Announced

Beginning Monday, October 21, 2013 and continuing through May 4, 2014, a series of billboards will be visible all across northeast Michigan. Designed to raise awareness of the serious problems of child abuse and neglect, these billboards most prominent feature is the state-wide hotline phone number which is to be used to report any even suspected cases of neglect or abuse. There will be at least six boards at any given time at eighteen different locations and the images will be changed every eight weeks.

The billboards are being sponsored on behalf of the Children’s Advocacy Center of Northeast Michigan by the NE Michigan Children’s Behavioral Health Initiative through the generosity of the W K Kellogg Foundation; The Alpena/Presque Isle Child Abuse and Neglect Team through the generosity of the Michigan Children’s Trust Fund; and with the support and cooperation of the Exchange Club of Alpena.
