Robin's Nest

Helping children smile again. 🙂

When a child who has experienced a significant loss can still have a “best day”, you’ve impacted their life in a positive way.

Robin’s Nest is a monthly, activity-based program designed to give children a reprieve from their loss and a sense of normalcy among peers.

With the help of mentors, the Robin’s Nest program provides “best day” opportunities, including fun, experiential activities that help children and their families find joy in their lives and create new memories.

If you are interested in learning more about Michael’s Place and the Robin’s Nest program, contact us at the office at (231) 947-6453 or by email at and connect with our grief support staff.

“… I had a lot of fun. It was the BEST thing I did all week, maybe all my life…”
