Wish Upon A Teen is a nationwide nonprofit organization serving teenagers with severe life-limiting medical conditions and learning disabilities. They recently relocated their main office to 36880 Woodward Avenue, Suite 106, Birmingham. Members of the Birmingham Bloomfield Chamber attended a ribbon cutting ceremony to welcome the organization to downtown.
The organization’s mission is to provide resources and creative programs to teenagers facing extended hospitalization due to illness or coping with learning disabilities. They offer creative, social and educational opportunities to help normalize their environment and rebuild their self-esteem as they transition into adulthood. All programing offered by Wish Upon A Teen is offered free to teenagers and their families. For more information, please visit www.wishuponateen.org or call 248-792-2938.
Michelle Soto, founder and president of Wish Upon A Teen, stated: “It is very exciting to be in such a vibrant and caring community. We had barely moved into our new office when several surrounding businesses stepped up to partner with us in our fundraising efforts. With that kind of hospitality and support, we know we will continue to grow and be able to reach out to even more teens and their families.”
