  • Brand It Blue – Current Initiative in Grand Rapids

    June 24th - July 25th

    The Brand It Blue Initiative was born out of a desire to serve and partner with a local organization to make a difference and provide hope in our community. For 28 years, The Express Employment Professionals Companies have partnered with local community organizations to serve and bring hope to the Grand Rapids community. This year, we are proud to partner with Wedgwood Christian Services.

    Wedgwood Christian Services is one of Michigan’s most highly regarded mental health & behavioral health experts for helping hurting children, teens, families, and adults, and is dedicated to boldly taking on the toughest issues facing them today through residential care, counseling services, and community programs.

    As a professionally excellent and distinctively Christian mental health nonprofit, Wedgwood provides a wide-range of social services to meet the needs of our community. Wedgwood’s comprehensive continuum of care is one of the largest among social services agencies in the state of Michigan. Their mental health resources are open to any child, teen, family, or adult who are looking for help, regardless of beliefs.
