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 offering a second chance to troubled boys from Ingham County, 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.

We are dedicated to our founding concepts and maintain an unfailing commitment to our vision of creating brighter futures for children, their families and communities.

   Laura and Mickayla Reppenhagen were featured speakers at our Strengthening Families Fundraising Breakfast. The Reppenhagens work with Erika Phillips, a Wraparound Therapist for Highfields. Laura spoke about raising Mickayla and working with Mickayla's schizoaffective disorder. Laura shared her personal poem with the crowd titled Slipping Away, which explained how she feels whenever Mickayla has an episode that she cannot control.
