Children's Champion Awards Breakfast

The Children’s Champion Awards Breakfast is a unique opportunity for the entire Genesee County community to rally around children and to say collectively that children are our first priority. The Children’s Champion Awards started in 1996 to recognize shining examples of those in the community doing good things for children. It is our hope that this event will continue to inspire and affirm the commitment we all have for our children.

Faces of Advocacy

Priority Children's mission centers on action---on moving from identifying needs and solutions to implementing those solutions and improving child well-being. Our methods are to bring community members together to devise and implement feasible, practical action plans to advocate and improve the health and well-being of our children.

FOCUS AREAS

We focus our advocacy efforts on disconnected/opportunity youth, abuse and neglect, poverty and mental health.
