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

Take a minute to think about the things in your life that make you happy.
The things no amount of money can replace because of the joy they bring you. Maybe it’s the memory of a trip, the new car you bought last summer or the people you choose to surround yourself with every day.
Our members at On My Own of Michigan often think about what makes them happy:
“I’m grateful to have learned how to do my own laundry.”
“Before OMO, I only used my microwave. Now, I’m able to cook all my meals.”
“I’m thankful to finally have friends and feel like I belong.”
“I’m so happy to be a part of a team.”
“I’m proud to be in my own apartment and take care of it without help.”
The members of On My Own of Michigan are grateful for being given the opportunity to grow their independence and live the life of their dreams.
When you donate to On My Own of Michigan, you help make their dreams come true.
We’re thrilled that we’ve reached our goal of raising $1500 to fund the support of our 60 members for one day! But as you know we don’t just support our members one day a year. Please consider making a donation of $74 today to help support our members and their dreams.Donate Continue Reading
