Help Children Recovering from Emotional Trauma with this Rewarding Project.
Our trauma assessment programs help children who are suffering from personal trauma. We need help making sensory packages with items that help children self soothe. This helps them cope better with the assessment, treatment and the healing process. The kits contain items such as scented Kleenex, a picture frame, stress balls, putty and feathers....If you would like to make and donate kits click here for a flyer with information and directions.

Spread Some Cheer this Year!
This is a great opportunity for either an individual or a group service project. Throughout the year we collect gift bags or boxes containing donations of useful items that we can give directly to people we serve. Useful items would be socks, hats, gloves, blankets, shampoo, soap, notebook & pen, Kleenex and a gift card to a local grocery store or restaurant. Once you have collected the items you would like to donate please email cdunn@essmichigan.org or call 248.475.6405 and she will be able to arrange for you to drop them off at a Michigan location that is convenient for you. Our locations are posted on this website. For an information flyer for this project click here.

Support Our Employment Programs.
We assists consumers in finding and maintaining meaningful employment. We have two opportunities for local businesses to get involved. We are looking for hairdressers/barbers in the Southfield/Royal Oak area who would be able to donate low cost or free hair cuts at their salon. This would enable our consumers to feel confident with their appearance during the job application process. We are looking for Corporations and local businesses that can provide employment advice and mock interview practice to people in our employment programs. Email cdunn@essmichigan to offer help.

Are you Handy? We could use your help!
We could use the skills of a Handyman for small repair jobs and an expert opinion! This would suit a retired/semi-retired handy person. Please let us know if you would be willing to help out with small projects. Email cdunn@essmichigan to offer help. Also we are looking for someone who can help our facilities staff at events to set-up and tear down tents and equipment.
