Molina Healthcare of Michigan Installs Molina Book Nooks in Whaley Children’s Center Group Homes

FLINT, Mich. April 22, 2021 — Molina Healthcare of Michigan (“Molina”) recently installed a Molina book nook in two Whaley Children’s Center group homes located in Flint.

The Zonta House (for girls) and the Optimist House (for boys) each received books, shelving and bean bag chairs as part of their recent renovations.

Whaley group homes offer a safe and healthy living environment for Michigan’s neglected, abused and at-risk children. The book nooks help to fulfil their mission of empowering youth and families to overcome trauma.

“At Molina, we’re committed to improving the lives of vulnerable populations,” said Heidi McGlinnen, associate vice president of community engagement at Molina Healthcare of Michigan. “We’re proud to partner with Whaley to make an impact in the lives of these children.”

“We are so very grateful for our Molina book nooks,” said Dawn Wisner, director of development at Whaley Children’s Center. “These cozy areas will be perfect for helping our kids to relax and get lost in a good book.”

A third book nook will be installed at Whaley’s Rotary House, also in Flint, near the end of May.
