GIVE WHAT YOU CAN

Make a real difference, locally. Consider setting up a reoccurring monthly gift to support our mission all year long.
Educating children, supporting families and rebuilding neighborhoods in Detroit.

Matrix Human Services, a 501(c)3 organization, has served the Detroit community and surrounding areas for more than 110 years. The League of Catholic Women led the way in 1906 with a vision and mission to fight poverty. Today our mission remains the same as we continue to touch lives and change hearts in our community.

EMERGENCY FOOD PANTRY

The Emergency Food Pantry acts as a supplement to other food programs, helping to ensure all clients have access to adequate food. The food pantry also provides a safety net in crisis situations. You can help by donating nonperishible food items, joining the Kroger rewards program to benefit Matrix with your weekly shopping or ORGANIZE A FOOD DRIVE!


CLOTHING CLOSET

The Matrix clothing closet provides career clothing for interviews, replacement wardrobes for crisis situations, cold weather gear for the unequipped, school clothes for growing children and so much more. We outfit men, women and children of all ages – in need – at no cost. Clothing donations are needed for men, women and children of all sizes!

GIVEAWAY DAYS

Items donated to Matrix are freely distributed during quarterly giveaway events hosted at The Matrix Center. Each Giveaway Day / Community Bazaar event welcomes the community to simply come and take items they need – for free. We’re actively collecting clothing, household items, furnishings, small appliances and more for the next Giveaway Day!


DIAPER DRIVES

Supporting our families, our Head Start centers provide all items needed for care, including diapers. Under federal guidelines Head Start families cannot bring diapers to the program. Matrix Head Start centers use an average of 7,000 diapers a week (as of 12/2014). YOU CAN HELP our low income families by organizing a diaper drive with your employer or group.
