“With a city like Detroit that’s been plagued with so many challenges over the years, you really need all of these positive interventions to come into place to really be able to touch individuals’ lives”, said Monique Phillips, Vice President of Development and Marketing of Matrix Human Services. “Individuals need to be able to take advantage of all of these services, as many as they want, or as many as they need, so that we can do our part to mitigate the barriers that people experience to truly [advance] in their lives. Matrix Human Services is a strong vehicle to be able to accomplish just that.”

Matrix Human Services’ impactful programs have yielded tangible results, transforming lives and creating a ripple effect of positive change. From education in Matrix Head Start centers that lay the foundation for lifelong learning to workforce development initiatives that equip individuals with marketable skills to senior services, the organization’s efforts uplift individuals and communities alike.

Furthermore, Matrix Human Services has developed strategic partnerships with local businesses and community organizations to maximize its impact. By leveraging these collaborations, the organization ensures that its programs are aligned with the evolving needs of Detroit’s diverse communities and are implemented in a sustainable and effective manner.

In addition to its commitment to social impact, Matrix Human Services is excited to announce the 10 year anniversary of its upcoming event, 313 in the D. This rooftop celebration, taking place on Thursday, July 13th, from 5:30pm to 9:00 pm at 3Fifty Terrace, promises to be a memorable evening filled with delectable cuisine, lively entertainment, and breathtaking views of Detroit’s iconic skyline. The event aims to raise funds to support the Matrix Center, a community jewel that serves as a hub for critical programs and services in Detroit’s Osborn neighborhood.

“What I’m proud of is 313 in the D is a very successful event, but it showcases Detroit. That’s one of the great things. It showcases what’s going on in the city itself”, added Mr. Frank Ervin, III, Board Chair of Matrix Human Services. “A lot of the people that come there [say] they don’t live in the city. They only know what they hear or read, and quite frankly they don’t know the services that are provided by an organization like Matrix, so 313 in the D gives you the opportunity in a social, relaxed setting to actually come together, talk to people, interact with people, and show them what we do.”

Matrix Human Services invites community members, businesses, and philanthropic supporters to join them in their mission to fight poverty and empower Detroit’s most vulnerable populations. By supporting their programs and initiatives, individuals can play an active role in building a stronger, more resilient city for all.
