Love For a Child:
Our mission at Love For A Child™ is to “Rewrite the story for at-risk children and youth through actions authentic love.” When we hear about stories of children who are severely hurt, abused, or living in fear we can’t help but want to step in to provide a safe place for these kids to be heard, listened to and cared for. Our trained and dedicated teams understand kids are meant to be kids, to have a childhood where their creative minds are explored and their smallest achievements are celebrated. Over 70% of children abused before the age of ten years old who have suffered some form of abuse become reliable to medications and drugs to cope with their surroundings. Almost 62% of foster care children in Michigan who have lived in traumatized life settings before the age of ten, will not graduate high school and revert to dropping out or potential substance abuse.

GiGi’s Playhouse was created to change the way the world views a Down syndrome diagnosis and send a global message of acceptance for all.
We understand that many families are first time parents and they need us. Many young parents do not expect, or know in advance of their child’s diagnosis, and they need renewed hope and genuine acceptance from day one.
At GiGi’s Playhouse families are never alone. From a prenatal diagnosis to career skills, we make a lifetime commitment to remain by their side. Families are empowered with all the tools their child needs to succeed!
