Since 1958 The Guidance Center has been committed to its mission to strengthen families and change lives.
Throughout the last six decades the agency has maintained a collaborative relationship with its local communities and schools to support adults and children experiencing mental health difficulties and other challenges. A group of concerned residents and educators recognized the need for mental health services in our area and joined forces in 1958 to help form The Guidance Center. Since then they have worked as a team to respond to the needs of children, adults and families in southeast Michigan.
The agency operates a wide range of programs and services at 23 locations. Their expertise in mental health and wellness, early childhood education, free preschool for low-income families, developmental disabilities services and support, mentoring, substance abuse, workforce development, Kids-TALK Children’s Advocacy Center, community gardens, and research and evaluation helps more than 24,300 members of our community annually work on their own personal triumphs in life.
