Who We Are
Christ Child House is an intensive residential treatment center licensed by the State of Michigan providing care for up to 31 boys, ages 5 through 16
We are, first and foremost, a home.
And the people who live under our roof become like family.
How We Help
Abuse, neglect, violence and unspeakable trauma have derailed their childhoods.
It is our mission to rebuild healthy lives for these children...allow them to reconstruct the dream of a rewarding and productive life…and restore hope and joy to them completely… body, mind, heart, soul and spirit.
The severity of the boys’ problems requires the expertise of a highly trained professional staff. The team, which includes clinical therapists, youth specialists, education counselors, recreation staff and a medical liaison, creates a highly structured treatment plan for each child to help rebuild his life.
The House team has grown to over fifty full and part-time staff whose work is supported by many active volunteers.
Our trauma-informed residential treatment programs include:
