KidzKare, a 501(c)3 non-profit benefitting children in the greater Rochester, MI area.

Our mission is to create, provide, and support programs that improve the physical, emotional, social, and educational well-being of children and youth in the greater Rochester area.

KidzKare is a Rochester, Michigan based 501(c)3 non-profit organization. KidzKare was found in 2011 by Jay Mitchell, MD, a pediatrician at Kidz1st in Rochester Hills since 1991 who is now retired and devoting himself to KidzKare. KidzKare seeks to partner with community members, non-profits, for-profits, municipalities, schools, and other individuals and entities to improve the present and future lives of our local children.

Current active programs of KidzKare include:

  • Raising Rochester: Organic, volunteer, multi-community garden program with produce donated to children and others at greatest need. The photo above is one of our middle school student groups with joy (and mud) on their faces after filling their new raised beds at their school.
