Community Benefit

Community Health for the Benefit of Children

Support for pediatric community health helps to fund critical services and innovative programs not funded by other private or public sources that improve the health and wellness of children, particularly within the Southeast Michigan region. Donations help to support a variety of programs and services that benefit patients and families and help them to prevent injury, access supportive services, and manage the impact of illnesses and injuries. In our effort to support the health care needs of children in our community, the Children’s Hospital of Michigan Foundation partners with affiliated organizations and programs (such as community-based health and parenting programs, injury prevention, poison control, and child advocacy programs) to help to meet the needs of families and to complement pediatric health care programs.

The Foundation currently supports several community benefit programs* that help to improve the health and wellness of children:

  • Adopt-A-Family Program
  • CATCH Emergency Assistance Fund
  • Celebration of Life Cancer Survivor’s Day
  • Child Life Family Support Services
  • Clothes Closet Program
  • Kids-TALK Children’s Advocacy Center
