A century of child welfare
Oakland Family Services, a not-for-profit, accredited child welfare agency, is celebrating its 100-year anniversary of providing critical services to Michigan’s children and families. Oakland Family Services offers a continuum of prevention, education and treatment services that span the human life cycle, enrich the lives of children, strengthen families and rebuild lives. For the last century, Oakland Family Services has helped ensure children have safe and loving homes free from abuse and neglect. The agency also helps children cope with trauma, mental health issues and substance abuse, and provides foster care and adoption services, education and child development programs and treatment. The agency builds brighter futures in the community through adoption, foster care, parenting and child development programs, free preschool for at-risk youth, and counseling services for those of all ages dealing with depression, anxiety, substance use issues, and severe emotional disturbance in youth. “We are truly thankful for the communities, families and people across Michigan for their support for the past 100 years,” said Jaimie Clayton, president and CEO of Oakland Family Services. “For 100 years, we have taken great pride in our mission to serve and provide critical resources to Michigan children and families and we will continue to advocate for those in need for the next 100 years. Oakland Family Services has three locations across Oakland County, one in Pontiac, one in Berkley and one in Walled Lake.
