Caring for children.

About U.P. KIDS

In 1899, Good Will Farm began as an orphanage in the Copper Country, providing a home and school to children from the Upper Peninsula. In 2012, our name changed to U.P. KIDS, but our mission remained the same: Caring for children. Building brighter futures. Through our Residential Program we continue to provide a home and school to children and youth experiencing difficulty at home, school or in the community.

Our Foster Care & Adoption programs provide caring temporary and permanent homes where children are protected and nurtured. The Post Adoption Resource Center offers support services to adoptive families to help maintain and strengthen relationships that will last a lifetime.

U.P. KIDS Big Brothers Big Sisters Program seeks to change the lives of children facing adversity- for the better, forever. Through one-on-one friendships, mentors can help children become confident, capable and caring individuals.

Family Services helps families keep their children home. The Wheels Program provides donated vehicles to families, and the Read to Ride program encourages children to read, with a chance to win a mountain bike!

Building brighter futures.

Stepping up when children need help the most.
