MCHS COMMUNITY PROGRAMS
Child Abuse Prevention
MCHS Detroit provides individualized service and care to at-risk youth, as well as to their families, aiming to develop and improve the quality, safety and security of home environments. Our goal is to reduce the risk of abuse and neglect in low-income, high-stress families. We will be providing Parenting Programs to help support parents learn and develop new, effective and tangible parenting skills that will help build parent’s confidence and tool belt in regards to their parenting skills and abilities.

W.A.R. (Worth, Able and Ready)
The Worthy, Able and Ready Program supports the self-sufficiency of citizens returning to society from incarceration. W.A.R. provides personal and effective resources and real opportunities to overcome obstacles. Returning citizens deserve dignity, respect and the opportunity to lead self-sufficient, productive lives within our community. W.A.R assists in securing basic needs and removing barriers to independence. The program commonly assists with securing birth certificates, state identification/driver’s license, medical needs, transportation, auto repair, clothing, furniture, housing and education. Any parolee or probationer is eligible. Release date must be no longer than 2 years prior. Participation is granted based on an interview with the case manager. For more information, contact Daniel Robinson at 313-645-6507 or email@example.com.
