Heirloom Birth Certificate
You can celebrate a newborn or memorialize an ancestor with an Heirloom Birth Certificate issued by the State of Michigan. These certificates are signed by the Governor. The certificates contain calligraphy style printing, are printed over artwork, and are suitable for framing and preserving as family heirlooms, but not intended as legal proof of birth. The commemorative certificates are mailed encased in cardboard shields to ensure protection.

Foster Families Needed
Would you consider becoming a foster parent? Montcalm DHS is always looking to recruit new prospective foster families and have found this to be quite a struggle in rural communities often hit hard by economic downturn.
Montcalm DHS is looking for homes in Montcalm and Ionia Counties so that our most vulnerable children (foster children) might remain in their schools, with their friends, and everything else that is comfortable to them.
