Big Family of Michigan is a non-profit helping to make life better for children waiting to be adopted or in at-risk situations. We work with adoption organizations, foster parents, social workers and children to help ensure all are working in harmony.   

Big Family of Michigan founder, Jeanne Fowler, is a child abuse survivor and foster child. Her brother, Peter, was beaten to death at the age of three by their mother. In 2000, Big Family of Michigan was created, in Peter’s memory.  

We also provide necessities for foster children who age out of the program, birthday parties for those that would never have them, a friend to talk to, and a shoulder to cry on. Most importantly, we give them the love that they deserve.

As a non-profit organization, we rely on the generosity of individuals and organizations. Anything that you can do to help would be greatly appreciated.
