Michael’s House relies on the generous gifts provided by community members. Whether it is a financial gift or a donated fun toy, each and every donation is valued and needed.

Financial gifts support Michael’s House’s on-going operational needs. Donations support the resources needed for professional staffing and ongoing training, forensic interview rooms and equipment, therapy resources, toys and activities for play areas and referral and educational material. Through your gifts, you will ensure that Michael’s House will fulfill its mission and prevent children from experiencing further trauma.
