LANSING – The Association of Accredited Child & Family Agencies (AACFA) today is recognizing 43 years of service provided to Michigan’s children and families by Ennis Center for Children, an AACFA member organization.
Ennis Center for Children has been working with abused and neglected children for more than four decades, reaching over 6,000 Michigan children and families annually in Genesee, Oakland, St. Clair, Monroe, Saginaw, Livingston and Wayne counties.
“Ennis Center for Children is an invaluable part of Michigan’s child welfare system, and on behalf of AACFA I thank them for 43 years of dedicated service to Michigan’s children and families,” said Judith Fischer Wollack, president of AACFA. “The Ennis Center has shown time and time again that it will rise to the challenges faced as a non-profit accredited child welfare agency to get children the care they need to thrive.”
Ennis Center offers a wide continuum of services and faces large demand for foster and adoptive parents, as well as for mental health services, which have become emphasized by the pandemic. It offers foster care and adoption services, as well as works with delinquent teens, helping them stay in school and on the path toward adulthood.
“We are so thankful for communities across Michigan for their more than four decades of support,” said Bob Ennis, president and founder of Ennis Center. “We take great pride in providing essential services to Michigan’s children and families and will always advocate for their best interests alongside other AACFA organizations.”
