Letter from Robert E. Wollack, President

“If you want to do something to help change your world, you can do that – one child at a time.” — Clifton Davis (1945-)

Dear Friends,

Wolverine Human Services is one of Michigan’s largest agencies rehabilitating delinquent youths. It assumes many diverse roles including direct care, research training, community education and advocacy for the needs of those whom we serve.

Since 1987, I have overseen the development and operations of Wolverine Human Services. Our facilities have experienced phenomenal growth, our programs reach an increasing number of youth and their families each year.

In 2013, Wolverine Human Services reported a 94.0% success rate (determined by the number of youth that complete those programs they enter).

Our mission is to offer the most appropriate settings and most effective services to children, their families and their communities. Our purpose is to take part in a mutual effort, assisting those in need to overcome social and economic barriers, to capitalize on their personal strengths and to contribute to their own healing. Wolverine Human Services’ main goal is “Helping Children To Be Victors!”

I am proud of the dedication of all the 350+ qualified and caring staff members of Wolverine Human Services. Without their input and support, our programs could not reach the level of success that we have achieved. Most of all, I am proud of the youth who have completed our programs and established successful lives for themselves. Seeing an individual turn his or her life around with the support of our programs solidifies my confidence in the importance of offering the types of services that an organization like Wolverine Human Services provides.

Wolverine Human Services will continue to follow the seven principles of Reality, Responsibility, Respect, Communication, Negotiation, Education and Love to achieve our goal of helping children to see themselves as loved, valuable and worthwhile individuals.

I extend my sincere thanks and gratitude to everyone who has supported Wolverine Human Services in the past and welcome your continued support as we expand and strengthen our programs in the years to come.

God Bless You,
Robert E. Wollack, MSW, ACSW
President
