Jack's Tree House

A Unique Place Just for Them

9jackstreehouseAt the Children's Hospital of Michigan (CHM), we know that it's not just children with illnesses or injuries that need the special attention and expert care we provide. Their brothers and sisters need nurturing, too. Jack’s Tree House offers a safe and caring place for kids. It is a special place for children to play and learn while their siblings are in the hospital. Our staff and volunteers provide lots of fun activities for children.
