Foster Today

There’s no time like the present to open your heart and home to a child in need.
The shelter, safety and support of foster parents makes a life-long impact on a child.


For more than a century, we’ve been committed to creating brighter futures for children,
families and the entire community across Michigan through our growing programs.

We believe in open hearts and open homes. Through our foster care and adoption programs, we’re able to provide safety, love and permanency to children across the state.

Our 80-acre campus in
Redford is home to 60 boys ages 5 to 18 who are in search of healing from their past traumas and building a brighter future.

Through our Detroit Office, we offer child abuse prevention services and parenting classes in addition to our free and public Resource Center stocked with infant necessities.

Foster care adoption gives a child a forever home at little-to-no cost. While the goal of foster care is to reunify with biological parents, we know that’s not always possible. MCHS helps families in their journey from foster care placement to becoming a forever family.

Our Teen Infant Parenting Services (T.I.P.S.) program supports young, displaced mothers and their children through housing, job-readiness, education assistance and more. T.I.P.S. empowers each mother in gaining confidence, stability and independence.

Through our transitional living program at MCHS, we support teens aging out of foster care and into adulthood. MCHS provides invaluable life-skills training, financial literacy, education assistance and workforce development in addition to housing and transportation assistance.

Returning citizens deserve dignity, respect and the opportunity to lead self-sufficient, productive lives within our community. Through the WAR program, MCHS is able to support by securing birth certificates, state identification/driver’s license, medical needs, transportation, auto repair, clothing, furniture, housing, education and much more. Any parolee or probationer is eligible.
Proudly authorized by Grand Valley State University, MCHS is the parent company to Fostering Leadership Academy, Michigan’s first true trauma-informed K-8 charter school located right on our Redford campus. Through trauma-informed curriculum and practices, this model leads the state in education services for children impacted by trauma, abuse and neglect.

Detroit’s largest growing population is our senior citizens. We believe it’s important to create programs that uplift the seniors in our community. We offer several unique programs both support and involving seniors to promote healthy and safe lifestyles including Fresh Conversations, the Foster Grandparent Program and the Senior Companion Program.


In 2019, we recorded major improvement and growth across the board. Check out our 2019 Annual Report for an in-depth look!
