Sexual Assault Services of Calhoun County was the recipient of the Women of Impact funding at our December 11, 2012 meeting.
Sexual Assault Services of Calhoun County (SAS) provides comprehensive services to victims of sexual assault and abuse, and their loved ones, throughout Calhoun County. SAS began providing services in October 1996, after much work done by the Calhoun County Sexual Assault/Abuse Coordinating Council determined a need for such services. The Battle Creek Health System agreed to become the non-profit fiduciary agent, and the multi-disciplinary council secured the first grant funding to begin the program.

Woman’s Co-op was the recipient of the Women of Impact funding at our June 12, 2012 meeting.
It’s comforting to have people in your life you can count on. Its often just as satisfying knowing you will be there when those same people need you.
That’s the guiding principle of the Woman’s Co-op – women helping women.
Programs and services focus on education, job training, and life skills classes. The organization uses a holistic program process that promotes self-reliance rather than social dependence.
Woman’s Co-op is women helping women work together to improve their lives through life management skills, education and employment opportunities.
We envision women succeeding in all aspects of their lives – cooperating to build a stronger community.
