LANSING―State Sen. Marty Knollenberg on Wednesday toured the Child Abuse and Neglect Council of Oakland County, otherwise known as the CARE House of Oakland County.

A non-profit organization, CARE House offers treatment and therapy services to child abuse victims, ages 3-18. The staff work directly with children that have been victims of abuse and neglect.

“The work that this organization does for the community is astonishing,” said Knollenberg, R-Troy. “Some of these kids are victims of years of severe abuse, and the support that CARE House provides these children changes their lives.”

CARE House provides preventative education, therapy, rehabilitation and various other services to over 5,000 individuals a year at no cost to the victim, or victim’s family. To learn more about their mission and the work they do, please visit:

“These stories aren’t pretty, but they are real and deserve our utmost attention,” Knollenberg said. “It was my privilege to tour their facilities and to see firsthand just what an amazing place and asset these people are to the Oakland County community.”
