Our Foster Care Program

New Light works in conjunction with DHHS and the Courts to provide case management services to children and adolescents ranging in ages from 0-18 in need of out-of-home placement. We work with many counties across the state of Michigan. We pride ourselves on our dedication to serving our community, years of experience, and desire to give children a home.
