Strengthening families to create brighter futures for children.
Who We Are
Founded in 1963, Starfish Family Services is a nonprofit human services agency, recognized as a champion for children and families across metro Detroit who have limited access to essential resources such as education, healthcare, and economic opportunities. Serving over 4,000 children and their families annually, we provide high-quality programs and support services that focus on early childhood education and development, behavioral health wellness, and empowered families. Through our family-centric, integrated approach, we build trusting relationships with parents and caregivers to connect them to the right resources at the right time.
How We Carry Out Our Mission
With respect: We recognize and respect the important role of parents and other caregivers in the long-term success of children.
With belief: We believe in the potential of all children and the power of healthy parent-child relationships to break the cycles of poverty and create long-term positive outcomes for children. We believe in investing early in the lives of families to keep them intact.
With warmth: We endeavor to always be a warm, welcoming, positive presence in the community.
