Michigan Department of Health and Human Services, Pathways to Potential, brought to DIA by the Michigan Department of Health & Human Services (DHHS). This program allows DIA to have a DHHS worker on site.

Description of the Pathways to Potential Program (DHSS). We believe everyone in Michigan has the potential to achieve their dreams. Some just need extra support and assistance along the way. In an effort to help everyone find a path to their fullest potential, we created Pathways to Potential as a way to break down barriers and deliver services where people need them.

The Pathways approach targets five outcome areas: attendance, education, health, safety and self-sufficiency. It also relies on a number of support networks and partnerships to wrap their arms around children and families to help them succeed. More information is available in the current annual report.

Victorious Kids Katchkey is committed to providing quality child care, early childhood education, and family/life solutions in the community. Services include "Before" and "Aftercare" services.
