Who we are.

On My Own of Michigan is a member-centered nonprofit organization that was founded in 1997 by a group of parents of young adults with developmental disabilities. In our twenty years of service to the Oakland County community, we’ve helped more than 100 individuals achieve and maintain a life of independence.

Our role (and mission) is to help make the transition to, and maintenance of, independent living a smoother journey for you and your family. We’re here to help you live the life of your dreams.

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!
