At this unprecedented time,

when not long ago no one knew what Coronavirus was, we have now seen this crisis unfold so fast, no one could have prepared for it. That includes, of course, the people in our own community, our own family, friends, and neighbors.  In lieu of the cancellation of the Barrister’s Ball, many have asked how the Downtown Detroit Partnership can be involved with assisting those who have been hit the hardest.

With your help, we will continue to answer the call of our community

Since March, Matrix Human Services has successfully converted all of our programs and services previously offered to virtual experiences to continue to meet the need of our clients and the community.


Programs that we continue through safe, social distancing parameters are:
