Got a question?
If you have questions regarding our previous adoptions, foster care, or any of the other services
we provided at our campus in Farmington Hills, please feel free to email me,

Please provide for me; your name, email address, phone number and detailed question.
I will return your request as soon as I can.

*** Please Take Note ***
In 2005, due to a failing economy, our Farmington Hills campus had to close  and the organization reorganized and developed new services, to continue to fulfill its mission of helping others through education. St. Vincent and Sarah Fisher Center returned to its roots and relocated back to Detroit, at our current address.
Then due to changes in national policy, we no longer have any adoption/foster/residency records stored at our facility.  Therefore we are unable to provide you with any information that you are searching for.  The closure of our orphanage/foster care/residency cottages in our residential facility in 2005 resulted in any records being transferred to the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services as is required under the statute of the Michigan State Law.
