As always, please remember to follow the CDC's guidelines and your local health authority's instructions as you support your community. Putting you and your neighbors’ health first is one of the most important things you can do to offer care, even if it means doing so from afar. 

Resources in Detroit

We've compiled a running list of resources from our neighbors and from around the web so that you and your neighbors can start thinking about ways that you can lend a hand and care for the people around you when times are tough. Use them to start your own project, or to plug into efforts already underway.
