Wildfires are devastating communities across California, causing more than 300,000 people to evacuate their homes and threatening many more. The Camp Fire in Northern California -- one of three blazing across the state -- is the most destructive in state history. We want to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you find access to shelter. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know the most effective ways to contribute.
"To help Children and Families Shape their own Futures".
Founded in 1929 by Sen. James Couzens. Sen. Couzens saw and adressed the plight of children who were neglected, abused or in dysfunctional families. He founded The Children's Center which was one of the first child guidance clinics in the country. Today The Children's Center offers Michigan's largest array of child and family services programs. We have received national recognition for innovation and effectiveness in meeting the special needs of at-risk children. Today, the families we service often suffer form a varitey of problems, including the frustrations of poverty, ... alcohol and drug abuse.. incarcerated parents.. incest and sexual abuse.. and many of them witness violence and death. The Children's Center is accredited by the Council on Accredidation and currently provides services in over 20 programs.
