Did you know?
One in five children suffer from a mental health challenge. Yet less than 20 percent of those affected get the supports and services they need
Over 50 percent of students aged 14 or older with severe mental health challenges drop out of high school – the highest dropout rate of any disability group. Mental health challenges get better with care that is individualized, family driven, youth guided, trauma-informed, coordinated and comprehensive.

Donated items Sorting Party !
On Nov. 14th, about twenty WRW volunteers showed up Saturday morning at Islamic Center of Ann Arbor to sort donated items, pack them in boxes and then transfer them to "Welcome Home Refugee Store". This store will hold items for refugee families to be picked up by appointment only.
MSS and WRW volunteers connect with families willing to donate and deliver them personally to refugee families. For large furniture items (dining table, chairs, bed, and sofas), a shipping container located on Ellsworth Rd. is used for pick up and delivery by appointment only.
