For nine years and counting, State Farm Neighborhood Assist has awarded grants to nonprofit organizations across the country to help make a difference in their communities. Cincinnati Eastside Rotary answered the call to action and championed an effort to secure a $25,000 grant for the Little Fork Family Advocacy Center to serve southwest Ohio.

The Little Fork Family Advocacy Center is envisioned to be a safe shelter in the community where a variety of specialists and support resources come together to address family challenges such as domestic violence, physical and sexual abuse, suicide and drug addiction. The collaborative initiative includes Child Focus, Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA), Mayerson Center for Safe and Healthy Children (Cincinnati Children’s Hospital), law enforcement agencies, mental health professionals and Child Protective Services all in one location.

To help secure the grant, Cincinnati Eastside Rotary spear-headed an aggressive campaign to promote the value of the Little Fork Family Advocacy Center and secure daily online votes through State Farm Neighborhood Assist. Nearly 4 million votes were cast with State Farm awarding grants to the top 40 causes. Ohio secured the most grant winners.
