AmeriCU has partnered with various children’s hospitals across the U.S. to provide financial assistance to families with chronically or critically ill or injured children through our Mortgage/Rental Assistance Program.

The Methodist Children’s Home Society strives to meet the needs of neglected and abused children by providing housing, educational, clinical and therapeutic services. Through their efforts, Michigan’s most fragile children are introduced to a loving, comfortable and safe environment. They encourage children to reach their full potential by providing them with the resources they need to succeed. Visit http://www.mchsmi.org to learn more.
Our employees have taken part in an array of company-sponsored volunteer opportunities with the Methodist Children’s Home Society in 2016, including an AmeriCU Sponsored Detroit Tigers Outing, a Halloween Trunk-or-Treat Event, a Holiday Celebration Party and Secret Santa Grant-A-Wish Program.
While many of these children are happy just to receive basic necessities, we believe providing them with every opportunity to enjoy their childhood is equally valuable. Today’s youth are tomorrow’s leaders; here at AmeriCU, we hope to inspire these children to reach their full potential through our efforts.
