Join Us. Help prevent children and their families from becoming homeless. “We are only as strong as our most vulnerable citizens in the communities in which we live. “ (Louis Piszker, Wayne Metro CEO)
We want to gather an extraordinary amount of friends to make a donation and build a fund that will help families avoid the risk of homelessness. Your tax deductible donation to Wayne Metropolitan Community Action Agency (Wayne Metro) will provide emergency assistance to families with children who are at risk of becoming homeless.
With an unemployment rate higher than both the state and national averages, Wayne County families are at imminent risk of facing homelessness due to job loss and/or reduced wages. According to Baseline Data Report published by the Michigan Coalition Against Homelessness, housing issues including eviction, foreclosure, lack of affordable housing, and utility shut-off account for 50% of stated reasons for homelessness among families. Let’s NOT ALLOW homelessness to be an option for Wayne County families. During the 2013-14 school year, there were over 7,800 school-aged children in Wayne County identified as lacking a fixed, regular and adequate nighttime home. Let’s stop that number from growing! Our communities can gain strength and help families thrive to nurture the growth and success of children. MAKE A DONATION TODAY!
