CARE of Southeastern Michigan has had an exciting year. The Host Committee invites you to attend this year’s 2nd Annual CARE for a Taste. This year’s Host Committee is comprised of community leaders and partners throughout many different industries, who have united together to support CARE’s mission of providing people and communities with services and programs that will improve their overall quality of life. On April 24th, CARE will celebrate forty-one years of service and impact at CARE for a Taste. You’re invited to join CARE of Southeastern Michigan for an evening of sampling bites from some of Michigan’s tastiest restaurants, enjoy live music, and hear stories of success and impact. All proceeds will go towards their mission of strengthening resiliency in people and their communities through prevention, education and services that improve the quality of life. The event will be held at the historic and captivating GM Heritage Center in Sterling Heights, Michigan. The Heritage Center showcases 165 GM vehicles from their Heritage Collection.
The Fraser based organization has much to look forward to in regard to the growth and expansion of many programs and services that they offer. A program supported in part by a grant from United Way for Southeastern Michigan, has enabled CARE to begin their SIF, Social Innovation Fund. SIF is designed to empower at risk families and their children to obtain brighter futures by meeting families at their homes, identifying strengths and needs, and connecting them to the multitude of service’s CARE and Metro Detroit offer. SIF is also designed to provide parenting tips, and to help families stay connected through innovative forms of communication, for example, text messaging. This expands on the Supportive Opportunities for Families program, which provides extensive parental education and resources to ensure that parents have the skills to meet their children’s needs, and have proper material to ensure safety.
In addition to the new programs listed, an exciting expansion has occurred within CARE’s Peer Recovery program. CARE’s Peer Recovery coaching program is unique in itself, the pairing and support that is provided to those who are entering treatment, in recovery, and even after their recovery journey, plays a crucial role in the growth and future of CARE. With a need to impact more people affected by substance use, CARE has become a driving force for recovery. CARE Peer Recovery coaches can now be found at St. John Macomb, St. John Moross and Henry Ford Macomb Hospitals. Peer Recovery coaches are now able to provide onsite care, and evaluations for those seeking treatment.
As CARE of Southeastern Michigan celebrates over four decades of impact and service in the communities in which they serve, it goes without saying, and the need for CARE’s services is greater than ever. The need for prevention education, resources and support, to empower CARE to fulfill their values of respect, empathy, integrity, resilience, diversity and inclusion, and collaboration is growing. CARE is committed to positively reducing the stigma, and working towards creating healthier, brighter futures for those impacted by CARE.
