Alcoa Foundation presents St. Joseph’s Mercy Health Foundation with grant

HOT SPRINGS, Ark. – The Alcoa Foundation recently presented the Mercy Health Foundation at St. Joseph’s Mercy Health Center with a $5,000 “community investment” grant on behalf of the Cooper-Anthony Mercy Child Advocacy Center.

Alcoa Hot Spring Continuous Rolling Plant Manager Murray Rudisill and Human Resources Manager Paula Lattanzi, in representation of the Alcoa Foundation, awarded the grant check to Mercy Health Foundation Executive Director Kathy Taylor and Cooper-Anthony Mercy Child Advocacy Center Director Janice McCutcheon. The Alcoa Foundation also presented the Mercy Health Foundation with a $2,500 grant for the Center in 2005.

“Money from the Alcoa Foundation makes it possible for Alcoa facilities to invest in communities in their area,” Lattanzi said. “One of the Alcoa Foundation’s four Areas of Excellence is ‘Healthy and Safe Children,’ in our minds a perfect fit with the mission of the Cooper-Anthony Mercy Child Advocacy Center. We are happy to, in a small way, contribute to that noble mission.”

The Center, Arkansas’ first and only hospital-based facility for child abuse and neglect, was founded by St. Joseph’s in the spring of 2003, after it was learned the 18 East Judicial District (Garland County) was one of the state’s top three counties in reference to filings of child maltreatment reports. In 2005 alone, 186 children were seen in the Center’s dedicated, child-friendly setting that provides a comprehensive, culturally competent, multidisciplinary team response to allegations of child abuse. The team response includes forensic interviews, medical evaluations, therapeutic intervention, victim support/advocacy, case reviewing and case tracking.

“Support of any kind is welcomed by St. Joseph’s Mercy Health Foundation,” Taylor said. “The Alcoa Foundation provided us with much-needed, early support for the Cooper-Anthony Mercy Child Advocacy Center, and now they have come back with more. We appreciate the support more than we could ever properly convey.”

For information about services provided by the Cooper-Anthony Mercy Child Advocacy Center, please call (501) 622-2531. Moreover, for information on how to invest in the future of the region’s health care through the St. Joseph’s Mercy Health Foundation, please call (501) 622-1123.

    There is almost nothing real about "reality TV." All but the dullest viewers understand that the dramatic twists and turns on shows like "The Bachelor" or "Celebrity Apprentice" are scripted in advance. More or less like professional wrestling, Donald Trump's previous claim to fame.
