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.

Since 1973, Work Skills Corporation (WSC) has been committed to results oriented programs that meet not only the needs of the individuals served but the wider community as well. WSC’s Residential Services is a key component in the rehabilitation service WSC offers to individuals who have survived traumatic brain and spinal cord injuries.
When a traumatic brain or spinal cord injury results in an individual no longer being able to live independently or struggling to relearn activities of daily living, WSC is positioned to help. Our Residential Services program provides a beautiful home-like setting where these skills can be developed with support of our caring staff. Because every person has a unique set of goals and abilities, treatment plans are highly individualized but always focused on helping each person reach their greatest social, emotional and functional potential.
As a component of the Residential Services program, each resident will have an opportunity to participate in WSC’s quality vocational program. Return to work is one of the greatest challenges a survivor can face. By pairing a personalized residential program with more than 45 years of experience in vocational services, WSC is proud to offer an approach to rehabilitation that encourages those we serve to achieve their greatest potential.
This approach allows us to provide the very best residential and vocational services in a cost effective package.
