Our Mission

To provide opportunities to children, youth and families to become more responsible for their own lives and to strengthen their relationships with others. 

Highfields, Inc. was founded in 1962 on the concept that people can change if they have the right opportunities combined with high expectations and positive adult interaction. 

Since then we have grown from a small residential camp, to a multi-purpose, human services organization that touches more than 8,300 people each year. 

Today we provide a wide array of counseling, intervention, training and support services to children, youth, parents, families and organizations throughout Michigan.
