Methodist Children’s Home Society Opens Detroit Office, Spearheading Child Abuse Prevention Effort
REDFORD, Michigan (February 6, 2019) – Methodist Children’s Home Society (MCHS) today announced the opening of its first-ever satellite office, which is in the Durfee Community Innovation Center in Detroit, MI. Located at 2470 Collingwood, the new offices will be dedicated to expanding foster care and adoption services, child abuse prevention services, and substance abuse programs for the local community.
MCHS Director of Community Partnerships Emily Foreman will lead the new Detroit office, which offers a range of resources such as parenting classes, opioid and drug intervention and a Resource Bank with diapers, formula, and other infant essentials for local families in need. Along with a concerted child abuse prevention focus, the Detroit Office will also have family visiting rooms for MCHS’s adoption services, making it easier for families in the community to access MCHS resources.
“Our focus at MCHS has always been helping Southeastern Michigan’s abused and neglected children entrusted to our care, I can’t think of a better way to add to our services than to extend our reach in the region aimed at the prevention of child abuse,” said Kevin Roach, CEO, MCHS.
