We're on a mission to revitalize Detroit.

Matrix Human Services is Educating Children, Supporting Families and Rebuilding Neighborhoods in Detroit.

Operating multiple programs in more than 35 Detroit locations, Matrix provides services to more than 25,000 individuals and families annually and operates the largest  Head Start program in Detroit serving more than 1,900 children.


All Matrix programs use a multi-generational approach to work with the entire family, offering a strong, reliable hand-up, not just a hand-out. Learn more.


Join us or support one of our many signature events, fundraisers and community events. Events help provide essential services to the community and support our work towards building stronger, more vibrant Detroit neighborhoods. Check out our events calendar.


Your gift can help feed a hungry family, provide shelter to a homeless child, provide support to those in crisis and support Matrix programs that are uplifting thousands of local lives, every day.
Reoccurring gift options are available.
An average of 90% of every donation goes directly toward program funding!

Ongoing and unique volunteer opportunities are available throughout the agency. Sign-up online as an individual or group for any ongoing needs and events or to develop a volunteer service project to suit your specific needs, group and skill set!
