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.

As an organization, we understand that child prevention is most effective when you engage all members of the family. Our Women Empowerment Series provides monthly workshops focusing on topics to empower women including, but not limited to, financial literacy, job readiness, parenting skills and mental health. In addition, our Women’s Support Group meets monthly and provides women with an outlet to express their concerns and connect with other women in their community. Women are encouraged to create bonds and express themselves through structured discussions. Participants leave with the tools and resources they need to feel empowered in their communities and family.
