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.

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.

Through our Long Term Foster Care program for unaccompanied children, when reunification with parents or other family members living in the U.S. is not an option, we’re helping to rewrite stories of trauma and loss by providing home studies, case management, and resources for long-term foster care placement.

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.

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!

Because of the support of our community and our partners, we are able to continue serving Michigan’s most vulnerable youth and families. Every donation counts!

At MCHS, we create unique, individualized and fulfilling volunteer opportunities for individuals, groups and organizations.

MCHS hosts its Annual Dinner, Golf Classic & Hearts & Heroes Gala every year. Sponsor or attend any of our three signature annual events!
