Tonight we were joined by two members of the Family Center, Jennifer Bingaman executive director (left) and Mary Jo Harris director of programs and administrations (right). 

They shared with us the different ways in which the Family Center has impacted the community. Their overall goal is empowering families, enriching lives. 

So far they have hosted 101 different programs in the area which have helped build healthier families. They focus on people’s mental health and all services/programs which they offer are free. Some of these programs include Narcan rescue training, QPR training, ACEs, Public Safety night, addiction panel, and women’s health night. 
The family center is also a part of the special needs resource alliance where they put together the first annual special needs resource fair. 

The family center has been able to offer mental health support to the Grosse Pointe school district as well as the Harper Woods district and several other schools. They have been able to bring in service dogs for kids and provide schools with chill rooms for kids to take a mental break from school and relax. 

The family center continues to be an immersive part of our community and provides mental health services to people of all ages. 
Join the family center at the Grosse Pointe Woods community center on Mon. 6/26 for training on how to administer Narcan.
