Erin Schrieber is the Director of Community Outreach and Volunteer Engagement at the Methodist Children’s Home Society.

The MCHS was founded in 1917 and has been at its Redford location since 1929. Its original mission was to care for orphans and it has now shifted to caring for abused and neglected boys referred by the Dept. of Health and Human Services. It has 60 available spots with each child having their own room. The average resident is 12 years old, having been in foster care for 3 years and having lived in 5 homes.
Gerald Piro is the Executive Director of Covenant House Michigan.  Covenant House is a homeless shelter for 18 to 24 year olds located on MLK Blvd at I-96 in Detroit.  It has 75 beds available and Mr. Piro described it as not just a shelter, but a program.
