Help for Our Children and Family Outreach Program

AHM’s Children & Family Outreach is part of our Weekend Day Shelter and Literacy programs. In the past, we have served 10-15 children on a typical weekend day. However, in the last six months, we have seen a 200 percent increase with an average of 38-40+ children attending weekend sessions. We need your help to respond to this increase in need. You can learn more about what we do for children here.
You can help, even if you are just one person. Any gift, no matter how small, has a big impact on the children we serve. Thank you for your continued generosity. 


Performing Poets

Performing Poets is one of trhe projects used to promote literacy with our weekend families. Children who struggle with reading are encouraged to recite poetry in a group setting, developing their proficiency to the point where they are able to perform in front of an audience. Sometimes their parents join in, resulting in fun and learning for the entire family. Literacy Programs Director Toni Townshend explains the genesis of Performing Poets, how the program works and her hopes for the families taking part. Your generosity and a grant from the Michigan Humanities Council make it possible for us to offer these kinds of programs. Thank You!
