Each holiday season, our supporters donate items, their time and talent, and funds to help families and individuals served by Southwest Solutions so that their holidays will be brighter.
Whether it’s the families in our Early Childhood and Family Literacy programs; the formerly homeless veterans living at Piquette Square; the homeless or formerly homeless assisted by our Go-Getters Drop-in Center or Housing Resource Center; those who receive counseling at our Waterman outpatient clinic or Children, Youth and Families; or those striving to better their lives through programs offered by Southwest Economic Solutions –
Your donations make a difference and are well appreciated. And we thank you.

Our Early Childhood Mental Health Program held its holiday party the Friday before Christmas. After lunch, the children of families served by the program received gifts made possible by donors to our Holiday Wish List, the generosity of the Michigan Association for Infant Mental Health (MI-AIMH), donations from local churches, and employees of Southwest Solutions who contributed items to the toy drive.
Many supporters donated to our programs and wanted to remain anonymous. We thank you for your kindness, as well as all other donors who are not listed here.
