The Giving Tree Challenge

The devastating impact of COVID-19 has shaken our community. At MCHS, we have been preparing for an increase in children entering our care due to the pandemic, and unfortunately, that’s exactly when we have seen.

Nevertheless, we know these youth are safe and in a loving environment with us. We power through because these children depend on us. And it’s our generous community partners who help us get through. All Inclusive and Community Financial are two of those partners who have collectively committed to matching up to $7,500 in donations now through June 15.

In place of our annual Golf Classic, cancelled out of an abundance of caution, we’ve been collecting donations through our spring appeal. We are so close to our goal of $60,000! By helping us raise the final $7,500, you help us stay rooted and stay strong.  Each leaf donation through the MCHS Giving Tree Challenge helps sponsor a child who has recently entered our care during the pandemic.

What costs are covered in sponsoring a child? Our youth rely on MCHS for meals, clothing, hygienic items, a safe place to call home, activities, entertainment, clinical therapy, and education in addition to the extraordinary around-the-clock love and care our staff provides!

Help us get closer to our goal by donating a leaf today! CLICK HERE to donate online, or mail in a donation to Methodist Children’s Home Society, c/o Development, 26645 W. Six Mile Rd., Redford Twp., MI 48240.

Our Commitment

During these unexpected times, our highest priority is the safety and security of our children, families and staff.  While many business surrounding us temporarily close, our 60 Residential youth on our Redford Campus are staying safe on grounds, where we are continuing to deliver the best care in our power. As public schools have sent youth home for the time being, we have launched an education and recreational program to keep our boys who call MCHS their home learning, growing, having fun, and spirits up during this time.  And for the hundreds of children placed in foster homes, without a doubt, our staff continues to deliver the best possible care and attention, navigating through changes as they come.

For all of our youth in care, we’ll still be here. We won’t be going anywhere. And because of our staff, our partners, and our community, we will weather one of the greatest challenges we’ve faced in our time. Because MCHS was built on the love and relationships we have with one another and the support of all of you, we know our children will be okay.

Please consider supporting our mission during this time by making a monetary donation to our relief fund which supports the daily operations of our Residential, our youth education program, and our foster families. Donations may also be sent via mail to Methodist Children’s Home Society at 26645 W. Six Mile Rd., Redford Twp., MI 48240.  You may also send a donation via our Amazon Wish List, which holds our current greatest in-kind needs. If you make a donation, let Development Officer Rachel Evans know at revans@mchsmi.org, so we can properly thank you! 

We thank you for continuing to support our mission of caring for our area’s most vulnerable population!
