Roof Sit is a 3-day fundraising event that supports The Community Healing Center’s programs that treat and prevent child abuse and neglect in Southwest Michigan.

Community Healing Centers, along with our partners, collaborate to fight and bring awareness to the child abuse and neglect that occurs in Kalamazoo.

Our Children's Advocacy Center offers compassionate, specialized care for children who are victims of sexual or physical abuse. We provide individual counseling for child victims and their non-offending family members, family therapy, and support groups for parents. Children in therapy learn to deal with their anger, shame and guilt of being a victim of abuse.

      Tips for Kids

      Back to Top

      Tips for Kids is a vital part of Roof Sit and a fun way for you and your friends to get involved.

      Volunteer teams are assigned to one of our local Shell Stations and are supervised and trained by a provided Station Captain. The object is simple: wash windshields and pump gas for tips – and lots of them!

      Shifts last 2 hours, however your team is welcome to sign up for more than one shift.

      Help us reach our 2018 Roof Sit goal of $80,000!
