What We Do

CATCH is dedicated to improving the quality of life for pediatric patients and their families at Children's Hospital of Michigan and Henry Ford Hospital. Though an ongoing series of special fundraising activities and the development of a board-designated endowment fund, CATCH provides needy children whose special needs might otherwise fall through the cracks.
