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.
