On My Own of Michigan hosts four major fundraising events each year. We celebrate the accomplishments of our members at the Annual Banquet. The Family Fun Bowl is one of our most popular events – an afternoon of Family, Fun, and Bowling (pretty creative name don’t you think?). At the Golf Outing, we…golf! And in the fall, the parents throw a party that we call the Gala! At all our events, we raise money which provides our members with the supports and services they need to live independently.Read more
Our program is designed to help our members develop and practice social interaction skills and increase opportunities for social network development. In other words…we provide support and opportunities for members to gain confidence, learn necessary life skills for living on their own, and make friends! When given the opportunity, experience and appropriate supports, our members succeed in these areas far beyond what almost everyone expected they could achieve.Read more
