Welcome to Care Seats of Michigan
Committed to Safety & Inclusion
Care Seats of Michigan was founded for one purpose - to build a space where all families can learn to keep their children as safe as possible while in and around vehicles. This isn't something many parents are able to prioritize; whether due to financial limitations, deficiency in education or other impactful lack of resources, car seat safety is routinely put on the back burner.
This being especially true for BIPOC families, Care Seats of Michigan pays special attention to meeting the needs of Black, Indigenous and Persons of Color. We are determined to reduce the historically severe disparity in resources and education pertaining to BIPOC and Child Passenger Safety in our community.
Care Seats aims to educate and remove barriers to information that support best practices concerning car seats and their passengers as suggested by the American Academy of Pediatrics and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
We invite you to explore our site and discover the community and resources Care Seats of Michigan provides to each and every Washtenaw Family. Get in touch with us today to schedule an individual car seat safety check, learn more about volunteer opportunities, or ask any other questions.
