Flint Adoption Agency receives grant

FLINT (WJRT) -

(1/16/14) -  Mid Michigan organization dedicated to helping children and families is on the receiving end today.

Thursday, The Ennis Center For Children in Flint got a much needed $15,000 check to pay for visiting room renovations - something that hasn't happened in more than a decade.

Robert Ennis is the founder of the agency that helps children who have been abused, need adoption or are at risk.

"It's going to specifically benefit the families who have to have supervised visits, monitored visits so we can access and evaluate and hopefully get their kids home to them," said Ennis.

The makeover will be paid for by a grant from the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Outstate Michigan. An organization that also understands the importance of helping children.

"The need is definitely here. With the number of foster homes and adoption rates of children, this is where it starts," said Sam Cox with the charity.

Renovation work is expected to start soon.
