McKenzie’s Hope Child Advocacy Center is the beneficiary of the Allstate Foundation Helping Hands in the Community grant in the amount of $16,000, secured through the combined efforts of Kathy Jordan and her team of Allstate agents.

On May 3, a group of 18 Allstate agents from all around Northeast Indiana came to McKenzie’s Hope to volunteer in a community work day for the advocacy center.

Volunteers completed a variety of tasks such as landscaping, painting and cleaning, and created a space for a new waiting room. Jordan headed up the event and reached out to fellow agents.

Due to the agents’ work, McKenzie’s Hope received the Allstate Foundation Helping Hands in the Community grant to help battle child abuse in the community.

Jordan, a current member of the board of directors for McKenzie’s Hope, assists in fund-raisers throughout the year to raise awareness and support for McKenzie’s Hope.

Proceeds will help McKenzie’s Hope to continue to provide a safe, child-friendly location for children and non-offending caregivers to seek comfort during a crisis event of abuse as well as expand the prevention education program.
