Created in 1997 as Community Health Services, Community Programs and Services aligns community initiatives across the Health System through program coordination, strategic planning and resource allocation. Today, we support and run several programs that create healthy communities, including Ann Arbor Meals on Wheels, the Housing Bureau for Seniors, Interpreter Services, the Program for Multicultural Health, Patient & Visitor Hotel Accommodations, the Regional Alliance for Healthy Schools, the Adolescent Health Initiative, the Comprehensive Gender Services Program, the FRIENDS Gift Shops, and Volunteer Services.
By participating with local and state partners, Community Programs and Services capitalizes on the University of Michigan Health System's resources and expertise to improve the health and the quality of life in the communities we serve.
