Michigan Department of Health & Human Services

Who We Are

Michigan Department of Health & Human Services can help families with temporary assistance when times are tough.

If you suspect abuse or neglect, call 855-444-3911 any time day or night. This toll-free phone number allows you to report abuse or neglect of any child or adult to the Michigan Department of Health & Human Services.

One number. One call. One person can make a difference. 

Approximately 13,000 Michigan children are in foster care at any given time. We need your help to keep these children safe and cared for until they can be returned to their family. In the event that they cannot be returned to their home, we need loving adoptive families to give them a place to call home - You could be the answer to their hope for a home.

What We Do

Through community leadership, the Department of Health & Human Services helps to improve the quality of life in MI by protecting children and vulnerable adults, delivering juvenile justice services, and providing support to strengthen families and individuals striving for independence.
