On My Own of Michigan, Inc. assists adults with intellectual developmental disabilities to become independent, self-sufficient, social and contributing citizens in their communities. Our members have intellectual developmental disabilities such as Autism Spectrum Disorder, Down Syndrome, Epilepsy/Seizure Disorders, Cerebral Palsy and Learning Disabilities. It is the goal of On My Own to assist each member to achieve their optimal level of functioning in independent living; in the workplace; with their family and friends; and within their community.

Events

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.

Success Stories

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.

What a year!

Thank you so much for your generosity in 2018. At On My Own of Michigan, we strengthened and expanded our programs to meet the changing needs of our community.

Because of you, 62 members like Nick had access to high-quality classes to develop their skills, social opportunities to build and strengthen friendships, and one-on-one support they need to live the life of their dreams.

Nick P has been a member at OMO for 11 ½ years. Nick enjoys the trips, classes, and outings offered to our members. He is actively involved on our softball and bowling teams, and Member Council. He’s even made a triple play in softball!

Check out Nick’s video to see what life would be like without OMO!
