We celebrated distribution of 1,177 ASKits this fiscal year, and the addition of six new facilities in locations from here in Rochester, to Escanaba in the UP. Tremendous effort by our liaisons has brought comfort and dignity to victims of rape and domestic abuse throughout the state of Michigan.

In addition to reviewing the Assault Survivor Kits program procedures and responsibilities, our members cheerfully recognized the wonderful work of the Red Nose Charity who support children in need.
