McCrory Center, more commonly known as Social Care Administrators, LLC was founded in 2012 in Redford, Michigan (Wayne County). The founder’s dedication to providing early identification, prevention, and intervention services to individuals at risk contributed to streamlining care coordination services throughout Wayne and Oakland counties. Staff included Registered Nurses, Clinical Social Workers, Infant Mental Health Specialists, Student Interns, and more. Within the first year of service, over 100+ families were screened for psychosocial risk, including mental health, food, and nutrition, transportation, housing, infant developmental delays (social-emotional-physical) and safety, etc.
After years of serving the community through case management and care coordination services, McCrory Center launched volunteer-led philanthropic projects to help close the poverty gap by ensuring residents have access to viable resources and support. Screenings for depression, substance abuse, and functional status are also offered to other area professional service providers.
In 2019, McCrory Center partnered with one of Metro Detroit's Largest Head Start program to provide Behavioral Health Consultation services. Services include classroom observations, teacher and staff professional development workshops, pre-screenings for autism and other developmental disabilities, individual student plans, intervention recommendations, and social and emotional development training.
In 2021, McCrory Center is the leading psychological diagnostic evaluation service provider in Wayne county.
Our organization provides a wide array of psychological evaluations for children and young adults, crises interventions, and behavioral training! . Over the years, we've proudly served over 2,000+ clients.
