Michigan Department of Health & Human Services: COVID-19 Information and Resources
The Listen, Protect and Connect psychological first aid system designed for families, neighbors, co-workers and first responders. One version is an “all ages” family-to-family, neighbor-to-neighbor version and two are specifically for supporting children. One for parents and one just for teachers and schools to use.
This approach suggests ways we all can support each other’s resilience and coping before, during and after emergencies. The approach builds on strengths and practices that families and community already use and offer additional ideas and tools to call upon in times of disaster.

Our dedicated staff and ever-growing family of enthusiastic volunteers have decades of experience helping people with disabilities optimize their potential through educational, vocational and recreational programs.
Together, we focus on each individual’s abilities rather than his or her disabilities.
THANK YOU TO OUR GENEROUS SUPPORTERS!
“Work Skills gave me hands on experience. They coached me and taught me a lot of the fundamentals of applying for jobs. It made me feel better about myself and taught me something different. It worked out great. I learned new skills and got a job driving a Hi-Lo. I learned to feel comfortable in the work environment. It was a real blessing in disguise. I feel better with myself and haven’t looked backed. I’m doing what normal people do. It changed my whole outlook.”
