Odawa Casino Collects For Purses With A Purpose
Odawa Casino, with the help of the community, presented donations to the Michigan State Police for their Purses with a Purpose program last week.

In honor of Women’s History Month, the Michigan State Police launched the Purses With a Purpose program to help collect important items for victims of sexual assault. When a survivor is leaving an abusive situation, they often must do so quickly and are not able to take necessities with them. The goal of the program was to collect donations of purses that are filled with comfort items and necessities to provide them to these survivors.

‘Purses with a Purpose’ was started in 2019 by a trooper at the Cadillac, MI post who saw what a great need for support there was for victims of sexual assault. Since then, the program has grown and become successful at other MSP posts throughout the state of Michigan. Odawa Casino became a drop-off location for items this April and plans to continue to participate in years to come. Click HERE to see the full press release.

May is Mental Health Month
North Country CMH (NCCMH) brought the PhotoVoice project to our communities a number of years ago to help our clients express their feelings, and break the stigma around mental health. Since then we have held a number of classes and the results are incredibly moving. With funding from Consumers Energy Foundation we were able to hold a virtual class and asked clients for messages of hope and coping during this unprecedented modern pandemic.
Click HERE to see their most recent project. Members of New Horizons Clubhouse and Petoskey Club recently came together in a ‘PhotoVoice’ discussion group about life during the coronavirus. They took photos and wrote reflections about their experiences in order to benefit others who are now struggling. We hope you enjoy their creations in this VIDEO.
