When the Calhoun County Sexual Assault & Abuse Coordinating Council determined a strong need for sexual assault services, the Battle Creek Health System helped make it a reality. They agreed to become a non-profit fiduciary agent for our program. And in October of 1996, we received our first grant funding and began providing services.
Since then, Sexual Assault Services, with tremendous community support and leadership has become a leading agency in Michigan, working to assist victims, raise awareness and end sexual violence in Calhoun County.

We are now a department of Bronson Battle Creek, and the Sexual Assault Coordinating Council is merged as part of the Calhoun County Sexual Assault/Domestic Violence Coordinating Council.
