Join the Christ Child Society of Detroit

Christ Child House is owned and operated by the Christ Child Society of Detroit, a charitable, non-profit organization of volunteers who have been helping disadvantaged youth throughout Michigan for more than 100 years.

The Christ Child Society of Detroit is part of the National Christ Child Society, which has nearly 6,000 members in 44 chapters across 20 states driven by faith, love, and a desire to change the futures of children in need. The society was founded in 1887 in Washington D.C. by Mary Virginia Merrick.

Of the 44 chapters, only the Detroit chapter supports a residential trauma informed treatment center as part of its mission.

In addition to supporting activities within Christ Child House, the Society has an active literacy program in Pontiac serving 100 first and second grade students, and, as is the hallmark of all Christ Child chapters, focuses on the creation of layette packages of infant clothing and supplies. The Detroit Chapter annually distributes over 2,000 layette packages to area social service agencies.

To supplement our annual operating budget, funds are raised though volunteer driven special events including the spring pour les enfants luncheon and the Night of Angels fundraising gala held each fall.

Tour The House

Tour The House

Your Internet journey led you here for a reason. Perhaps it is your dream for a world without the pain of abuse and neglect. Perhaps it is your empathy for the fear and anguish a young boy might feel when he walks through our doors.  Perhaps it is your awareness that together, we can change lives.

Take the next step and see for yourself this place so many have called home.

We welcome donors and referral sources to tour the house at one of our scheduled monthly gatherings. Tours take place when the boys are not at home and provide you with the opportunity to hear firsthand from our caregivers. Fill out the form below if you are interested in a scheduled tour.

Thanks for submitting a form to tour the Christ Child House. A member of our team will contact you.
