Play-Place for Autistic Children
Supported by our office in Sterling Heights on Metro Parkway
Thousands are affected by autism, which can take a tremendous toll on families. Waking up each morning knowing that I, along with my colleagues at MSGCU, can make a positive impact on these families’ lives, adds significance to my own life.

Started in 2016 by a local mother with a dream to provide a fun-filled, judgment-free, haven of hope for families challenged with the everyday nuances of “living with autism,” the Play-Place for Autistic Children is dedicated to inclusion, acceptance, and support. Through a unique play-powered environment, Play-Place offers recreation, education, therapy, life skills, social development, health & fitness, resource management, and vocational training.
The 25,000 square foot facility includes a computer café, creative art studio, carousel, lego castle, inspiration party hall, laser light chalk room, calming rooms, swing central room, parent bistro, haircut hut, and cinema theater. Coming soon, the Play-Place will expand the bistro and offer full-service meals for families.
The Mound and Sterling Heights Branches are honored to support the Play-Place with a combined $2,000 donation. We are humbled by the mission of the Play-Place and are excited to see how many lives are impacted by their life changing activities.
