Who We are


Christ Child Society of Detroit

Where Love Leads To Action

Christ Child Society of Detroit is a non profit, multidenominational organization of volunteers who have been changing the lives of children in need across metro Detroit for more than a century.

Our Chapter

One of 45 chapters of the National Christ Child Society, the Detroit Chapter manages three arms of outreach that directly impact thousands of lives every year: the Layette House, Literacy Program and, unique to the Detroit Chapter, the Christ Child House, a residential treatment center for up to 31 boys, aged 5-16, who are victims of abuse and neglect.

Our Community

Each of the programs gain their strength from the ongoing efforts of more than 300 women who are members of Christ Child Society Detroit.  Further support is received from a co-ed Junior Christ Child Society comprised of high school students, and in 2021, Christ Child 313 was created by a group of young professionals looking to network and make a difference in the community.

As a member for more than 10 years, I am so proud of everything that Christ Child stands for. To see a boy that is so broken come stay at the House and leave as a well put-together young man is a beautiful sight to see. Christ Child is ingrained in our family and we will continue to support this amazing organization for years to come!
