Child Safe Michigan has the only mentoring program in the state that is dedicated to serving foster care children who have been abused or neglected. There are 13,000 children in Michigan who are currently in foster care, and Child Safe aims to give kids the opportunity to be happy, healthy, loved and most importantly safe, so they can become successful adults and contribute to their community in a positive way.
The Mentoring Program is 100 percent privately funded, and the annual gala marks its largest fund raiser of the year, helping to determine how many children the organization can serve.
