SMILE (Start Making It Livable for Everyone) is a two-hour educational program for divorcing parents with children under the age of 18.
ADEPT (After Divorce: Effective Parenting Techniques) Program
ADEPT provides training for parents (building on the SMILE program). Over a series of 6-8 weekly sessions, parents study how divorce affects children, while learning how to discipline as a single parent, avoid alliances, and spot developing problems.
As part of a federal grant, Michigan Strategies to Increase the Children's Health Care (Mi-STITCH) is getting the word out to encourage parents to sign their children up for free or low-cost medical insurance. The link above provides a contact list for both low cost insurance providers as well as information for Medicaid or Mi-Child.
