ArtWorks Detroit is back!

Over the past 24 years, the local and national artist communities have rallied their talents to benefit underserved Detroiters by way of ArtWorks Detroit. Every year, over 80 artists have donated stellar works of art to raise funds for Matrix Human Services and we were looking forward to another amazing year. During these unique times, each day has brought more canceled events and even greater uncertainty, yet we are excited to announce that the show will go on and the 2020 ArtWorks Detroit art auction will be a weeklong multi-experience event from Monday, August 24 – Thursday, August 27, 2020!  

Thank you for attending 313 in the D - House Party Edition

One of the biggest rooftop parties in Detroit is relocating this year to your living room! Matrix Human Services had to re-imagine their annual rooftop fundraiser, “313 in the D”, because of the pandemic. So instead, they are bringing the party to your home. They have created a house party pack that will let you have fun with your family and friends and give back to the community.

We Are Here For You - Matrix Human Services Continues to Serve through COVID-19

On April 1st, we completed the 2nd day of our Community Donation Drive at our downtown office. Food from Eastern Market Partnership was organized into care packages along with donated essentials from our generous donors. Hundreds of care packages were delivered to seniors, youth, and our Head Start families at their homes.

Matrix + Gleaners Food Distribution Day Doubles in Size

Matrix has been providing food to Detroit’s Northeast side and surrounding areas long before COVID-19 at The Matrix Center for our Food Tuesdays. By partnering with Gleaners Community Food Bank, we have been able to meet that need, now providing food for up to 600 families at each Food Distribution Day, and the line of cars continues to grow each time.

Black Lives Matter

The protests over the last week for George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, and Breonna Taylor have laid bare the injustice that still exists in our country. It is times like these where remaining silent is not an option. Matrix Human Services is an extremely diverse organization, we are 60% African American, 20% Latino, 20% White with 10% of our overall staff identifying as LGBTQ. 


As developments with Coronavirus continue, we will be doing everything we can to ensure everyone’s health and safety. 

We're on a mission to revitalize Detroit.
