Child and Family Services of Northwestern Michigan is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization serving 20+ counties in northern Michigan. Since opening in 1937, the organization has provided foster care and adoption services to our region. Over the years, the organization has grown to respond to the community's changing needs, adding counseling, supervised visitation and exchange, intensive family preservation, and more to its roster of programs. In January 2014, Child and Family Services merged with Third Level Crisis Intervention Center and since then provides 24/7 suicide prevention, crisis counseling, and general information & referrals through our Third Level Crisis Unit. Child and Family Services also operates Pete’s Place, the region’s only youth shelter, and offers outreach and support to struggling teens. In 2018, in response to community need, Child and Family Services launched a social enterprise program, YouthWork, which provides job skills, mentoring, and educational support to youth and young adults. YouthWork is an AmeriCorps program.
