In March, COVID-19 took the US by storm. Our campus was forced to close with just hours to prepare how we would continue business. Our entire team has been working diligently to ensure that children and families in Detroit continue to receive the life-changing therapy and services that they need. All of this is possible because of you. Thanks to you, children are continuing to receive life changing therapy and services during the COVID-19 Pandemic. Not only were we able to transition in less than one week to begin offering mental, behavioral, and emotional health services remotely via telehealth, but we began accepting new clients and delivering crisis care services virtually as well.

What’s more, the Child Welfare team has maintained their activity through video and phone calls. They even recruited two new host homes for youth in the Young Adult Self Sufficiency Program (YASS). What a win!

Services for children with autism and other developmental disabilities are gaining strength. Therapists in this department have seen children progress to understanding that their therapist is on the other end of the video call talking and interacting with them. This is something experts were not sure children with these types of disabilities would be able to understand.

This has not been an easy transition for anyone. But you are making it possible for children and families to keep getting the treatment they need to build successful futures. Thank you!
