The St. Vincent Catholic Charities (STVCC) Children’s Home prepares to welcome the Sentinel Knights Riders Against Child Abuse on Sunday, July 31, 2016 at 1:00 p.m. to give a presentation on the dangers of bullying and child abuse.
This local biker club has bonded together to speak out against child abuse and bullying across the Greater Lansing area. During their visit to STVCC Children’s Home, they will share their personal encounters with child abuse, past experiences helping local children who are victims of bullying, and the importance of advocating for those in need. Following the presentation, residents of the Children’s Home will have the opportunity to experience different motorcycles with members of the Sentinel Knights.
About the Sentinel Knights
Sentinel Knights Riders Against Child Abuse seek to show children that adults can be trustworthy and care about the welfare of children. Additionally, the Sentinel Knights have partnered with Michigan State University’s Project GREEEN and MSU Extension Program RELAX: Alternatives to Anger as a way to reach out to underserved audiences, and speak about anger issues and anger management. This riding club hopes to work with STVCC Children’s Home staff and volunteers to show the residents of the Children’s Home that there are people who want to help them succeed.
St. Vincent Catholic Charities Children’s Home offers long term and short term residential treatment for children ages five to seventeen. Many residents in the Children’s Home entered the foster care system due to abuse and neglect. The Children’s Home provides individual and family therapy, an on-site education program, and twenty-four hour counseling and role modeling.
