Great Start Collaborative honors Kehres Health & Chiropractic with Family Friendly Business Award for October-November 2014
SAGINAW - The Saginaw County Great Start Collaborative is honoring Kehres Health & Chiropractic of Saginaw and Midland with its Family-Friendly Business Spotlight Award for October-November 2014.
“They are so good with kids, even newborn babies,” said one Great Start Parent Coalition member. “They helped my baby sleep better and improved her muscles so she could latch (to breastfeed) more efficiently. They have little toys and activities in the waiting room for kids to use while waiting and really accommodate families, busy scheduled and scatterbrained new mommas.”
Great Start is the umbrella partnership over nearly all early childhood initiatives in Saginaw County, with member agencies/programs including Birth to Five, all Saginaw County school districts, child care providers and preschools.
Parents who volunteer with the Saginaw County Great Start Parent Coalition helped choose this award designation, to honor its community service and help especially to young parents.
Kehres has two locations: at 4882 Gratiot Suite 13, in Saginaw, and 601 E. Wackerly Street, Suite 2, in Midland. The team of doctors and staff offers treatment for the entire family, as well as massage therapy.
Dr. Dan Kehres and his practice are working to raise awareness for healthy eating, physical activity and overall wellness in our communities. He offers free health classes and speaks at churches and businesses across the region.
Great Start Collaborative selects six Family-Friendly Saginaw County businesses or agencies a year. Recipients can include businesses or agencies that reach out to families as customers with special activities, promotions or services or those that support employees with children with benefits such as on-site daycare or flexible hours.
“It is so important that we honor local businesses that truly understand the importance and value of giving children a strong start in life, and helping families to do so,” said Great Start Collaborative Director Julie Kozan. “These children are our future workforce!”
Anyone in the community can nominate a business for the award.
