As the poverty situations in Michigan continue to increase, the crisis continues to deteriorate. According to a current Kids Count Statement, Michigan’s in general child poverty was about 19.3 percent in the 2007, which is up from 18.3 percent in the year 2005. Poverty has increased over the precedent two years since Michigan’s financial system has constantly been to declining. In addition to the high joblessness numbers amongst the citizens is also pouring up the frequency of rational health needs. Many more people will need help to deal with gloominess and nervousness and other disorders, but very few of them have the necessary means to recompense for it.

Many citizens have found this health center as blessing for their kids and also to deal with their mental health as well. Poor people rarely have what it takes to get the proper health insurance. Prices of commodities are rising as the day’s progress and many concentrate their efforts to find basic needs. Children in this county rarely get the best facilities because many hospitals are overcrowded and the medical supplies run short. The government is assisting the medical center to rebuild itself and give sponsorship in order to provide better and sufficient medical care for all its citizens. Many citizens are coming out to air their views and what they think should be improved in the facility so that it can run according to the wishes of the people.

Cherry Street Health Services came to light 1988 in order to provide primary and basic health care facilities to populace in the Kent County, and most importantly to those earning low wages. Cherry Street Health Services provides an amalgamation of precautionary care, personal care, and medical care to almost 50,000 patients yearly.
