The Vectren Foundation recently awarded a $1,000 grant to McKenzie's Hope.

The Foundation decided to provide the grant so that McKenzie's Hope could continue to provide a safe, child friendly location for investigations of child abuse in Huntington County .

The grant will go toward the continuation of the child advocacy center program, which seeks to ensure that children and families are provided high quality service during the process of child abuse investigations.
