Have you seen us on the news? The Children’s Center, in Detroit, has been spreading the word about Foster Care Awareness this month. We are sharing the ways everyone can help children in foster care in metro Detroit and surrounding areas.  Whether it’s by fostering, mentoring, volunteering or donating, YOU can join The Children’s Center and lead the charge on helping Detroit youth in crisis.

After all, if you heal children, you heal Detroit.

Hear from our CEO Deborah Matthews about the work we do for children and foster families during this interview with WDIV-Local 4. And then hear from Deana Fisher, head of Child Welfare at The Children’s Center and adoptive father Devin Gough on CW50’s Street Beat.  Coverage by My TV 20 of our wonderful blue ribbon event on May 8 emphasizes the need for foster families to care for children and raises awareness of foster care.
