MI Community Care is a free program run by Washtenaw and Livingston County organizations that work together to meet the health and personal goals of participants–many of whom have complex health, behavioral health, and social needs.
Participants receive a broad range of services from more than a dozen local organizations—including health care providers, mental health and substance use treatment providers, and social service organizations.
MI Community Care participants are assigned a care coordinator from one of several local organizations. Care coordinators meet with participants to learn about their health and personal needs, then help participants achieve their goals.
Over the last few years, hundreds of residents have benefitted from this confidential program, which does not interfere with other forms of aid.
