Accomplishments

  • Breastfeeding-Friendly Spaces—On May 19, 2016, Anderson Township Trustees adopted an Employee Nursing Policy to support a new mothers’ choice to breastfeed her child when returning to work. A designated lactation space will be created that is comfortable and easy to get to. The Anderson Township WeTHRIVE! Team will use this policy as a basis to allow community members and visitors a private place to nurse their children or to express milk as needed while at the Anderson Center.
