Family Support Services

Do not fear: I am with you; do not be anxious: I am your God. I will strengthen you, I will help you…

Isaiah 41:10

Catholic Charities of Southeast Michigan (CCSEM) offers a variety of services to help you and your family:

Mom and baby

Project Hope

Focusing on Oakland, Macomb, and Wayne counties, Project Hope offers prenatal and parenting education to mothers so they can deliver healthy babies and be successful parents. To help serve our clients, donations of diapers and other infant care supplies are always needed to fill our “Baby Closets” at our offices in Southfield, Romeo, Pontiac, and Detroit.

Go to our Project Hope page to learn more or contact Maria Hernandez at hernandezm@ccsem.org (for Pontiac and Romeo locations) or Mary Beecy at beecym@ccsem.org in Detroit.

Supervised Parenting Time

This program will enable birth parent-child visitation at our Southfield Child Welfare, Adoption, and Fostercare location.  These visitation services help maintain the presence of birth parents in their children’s lives during difficult periods when courts are involved. The purpose of the program is to provide a safe environment for parents and children to visit, continuing and hopefully enhancing their bond while the children are in foster care. CCSEM will provide court testimony on visitation time assessments, which may reduce the time a child is in foster care.

To learn more about this program, contact Kristi Hardin, Child Welfare, Adoption, and Fostercare Program Director at 248-548-4044, Ext. 3929 or hardink@ccsem.org.

 

Operation Layette

Operation Layette is a program that offers hope and support to moms and their babies (newborn –
6 months old) by distributing layette kits with essential baby items.  Operation Layette is a program in partnership with the Council of Catholic Women and the Archdiocese of Detroit. Want to help us provide layette kits to moms and babies in need? Consider donating items from our Amazon wish list or hosting a baby shower at your church!  For more information about Operation Layette or the Council of Catholic Women, please contact Jan Popowich at janp2@wowway.com or call (586) 212-0434
