Dear Friends, At The Children’s Center of Wayne County, we dedicate ourselves to helping children and families shape their own futures. What does it mean to shape your own future? We believe it means children have the opportunity to learn, play, grow and develop free from the constraints of the episodic or chronic trauma, abuse, neglect or mental illness they experience. We believe this translates directly into a thriving community for all of us.
2010-2011 Community Report
Thanks to our strategic partners, generous supporters, volunteers and staff we provided healing mental health services to more than 7,000 children and families last year. These children and families participated in one or more of our twenty-four programs. These innovative programs are built on three core beliefs: • Ensuring children have a Healthy Start in life is the best investment our community can make
• The faster we can Heal the Hurt of childhood trauma, the more successful children will be as they grow into adults • Safety is critical to a child’s mental, emotional and physical development
We are working to position The Children’s Center as the best youth mental health services provider in the nation. From the moment children and families enter our child friendly campus, receive home-based or school-based services, our dedicated staff of therapists, clinicians and nine Board Certified Child Psychologists and Psychiatrists commit to providing the highest quality of mental health services.
Debora Matthews Chief Executive Officer
Looking ahead, we must scale our innovative programs and services to meet the growing mental health needs of children and families in Greater Detroit. This year, the number of families seeking help is even greater. Together with you, we will bridge the gap and continue to help more children and families shape their own future. Fortunately for all of us, along the way we’ll be shaping a greater Detroit.

What’s New and exciting at TCC
Crisis Care Center
The Children’s Center continues to identify innovative methods to meet the needs of the community. We recognized the escalating number of children being hospitalized due to challenges with behavioral well being needed special attention. From there, the concept of offering a crisis care center was developed. A crisis care center will provide families and children with brief crisis intervention to help ease the immediate problem they are experiencing. A Care Manager and Clinician will work with families to develop a Crisis Plan and a Safety Plan. Families will be provided information and assistance for follow-up treatment. This resource is appropriate for children and youth who can be treated outside of the hospital emergency room setting for their emotional/behavioral or mental health concerns and do not require medical attention for physical health concerns.
In an on-going effort to increase Agency efficiency and ensure children have access to treatment in a timely manner, we are embarking on a new process improvement initiative. What does this mean to our clients? The Children’s Center will implement a new centralized scheduling process where all appointments are managed within the new Centralized Scheduling Department. This process will allow clinicians additional time to provide
valuable therapy directly to the parents versus managing a schedule. A consistent review of key performance indicators and collaborative documentation will also increase productivity and enhance person/family centered treatment increasing the empowerment of our clients.
Respite Care Services
The Children’s Center stands behind the belief that families and children with special needs deserve supportive services to preserve the integrity of the family whenever possible. Therefore the Family Respite Program is being enhanced to support and maintain family stability by providing short term planned respite care within a family home setting. TCC’s program is designed to supplement rather than to displace other therapeutic interventions such as individual group and family therapy. The goal is to assure the most appropriate least restrictive level of care, while preventing unnecessary often long term out-of-home placement of children.
Campus Master Plan
Creating a more dynamic and welcoming environment within our child friendly campus takes foresight, passion and dedication. The Children’s Center Leadership has been working diligently to develop a campus master plan to provide important guidelines to help drive current and future decisions regarding TCC’s physical resources, functionality and identity while helping evaluate long term capital priorities. This project is so exciting because it involves valuable input from stakeholders across the campus which includes: Leadership, Management, Staff, Clients, Children, Parents and the Board of Directors. The key focus area driving dialogues are values and priorities, functionality, image and identity as well as cost and revenues. Keep your eyes open for new and exciting enhancements on The Children’s Center’s midtown campus.
The Children’s Center is proud to offer a continuum of more than 20 programs and services on a multifaceted campus located in midtown Detroit.

PROgRAM HIgHlIgHT Adoption
The Children’s Center works diligently to identify permanent loving homes for children who have been removed from their birth families due to abuse or neglect. For a child, this means their biological parents rights have been legally terminated by court action or voluntary release, making the children available for adoption. In the past year, The Children’s Center has been successful in finding permanent families for 67 children. These children represent a cross section of children in foster care today ranging in age from infancy through seventeen years, from various ethnic groups and often having special needs, either physical or emotional.
Fortunately, most of them were able to be adopted by relatives, or the foster families with whom they had been living. The Children’s Centers Adoption staff works tirelessly to assess the family and the child to determine a good match. A child’s safety and well-being is the greatest concern; therefore families are carefully screened to make sure that children are in the best environment for them. “It’s a journey,” states TCC Adoption Coordinator Rolecia Webb, “Many families, especially when it’s their relative, don’t understand adoption is a legal process. It is very important we work together as a team to ensure the best interest of the child.” Through the hard work and dedication of The Children’s Center Adoption team, we are proud to assist 67 children in having forever families.
PROgRAM HIgHlIgHT SYSTEMS OF CARE – sparks collaboration between The Children’s Center and Oakwood Hospital’s Center for Exceptional Families The alliance with Oakwood Hospital’s Center for Exceptional Families supports The Children Center’s goal to enhance the blueprint for integrated treatment in Michigan. The expansion of integrated healthcare services including behavioral health, is destined to have a long lasting impact on the community through the sharing of information, best practices, access to services and educational resources. The Systems of Care partnership demonstrates a set of values and principles providing a framework for systems reform on behalf of children and families. Often families interacting with multiple entities feel as though they are traveling through a maze, we believe it is our role to advocate and provide a clear roadmap to help families easily maneuver through complex systems.
TCC takes a holistic approach to the care and treatment of the families and children we serve. The blossoming Systems of Care Initiative demonstrates our commitment to improve effectiveness and integration of treatment planning and collaboration across medical health and mental health systems.
Integrated Health/ Systems of Care
Physical health has a big impact on client’s mental health and far too often the systems are not consistently collaborating or working effectively together in the best interest of the client. To demonstrate our commitment to this philosophy our dedicated staff and Leadership have participated in a collection of local and national conferences regarding integrated health care and health care reform. The Children’s Center strongly supports integrated physical and behavioral health and truly appreciate Oakwood Hospital’s Center for Exceptional Families as a community partner.
PROgRAM HIgHlIgHT Summer Enrichment
For many children, summer is a hiatus from school learning and a time for relaxation. At The Children’s Center, summer is a time for creativity and exploration. Going on its 10th year, The Children’s Center offers its clients a summer camp program that embraces stimulating activities promoting social and emotional growth in a safe and fun environment. The summer enrichment program which runs annually from mid June through mid July is made possible by Tau Beta Association through their support of the Center for Discovery. The summer camp program strives to provide a memorable and fun experience for the children participating while promoting self esteem and pride.
During the summer of 2011, The Children’s Center welcomed more than 30 children to summer camp. Of the many activities available, a new component was added to the program – music therapy. Music therapy is a clinical and evidence-based intervention that is designed to enhance memory, improve communication, and help participants express feelings, amongst many other benefits. Partnering with The Children’s Center, students of Michigan State University’s music program provided this innovative therapy once a week to clients. More traditional activities such as pottery, arts and crafts and dance lessons were offered to the children creating an opportunity to expand their creative minds and socialize. Continuing with The Children’s Center desire to decrease their carbon footprint, children learned about the importance of “going green.” An urban garden was planted on The Children’s Center campus in June 2011. The garden produced an assortment of vegetables that the children then used in cooking classes ultimately teaching them invaluable lessons about sustainability and self-sufficiency. Parents are anxiously awaiting the summer of 2012.
