The commemorative certificates are mailed encased in cardboard shields to ensure protection. Visit Michigan Heirloom Birth Certificates website.

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.
