Hope Starts Here, along with the city of Detroit Mayor’s Office, United Way of Southeastern Michigan and more than a dozen other partners are showing how Detroiters can come together to meet a crisis head-on. These collective partners are fully committed to ensuring that families and caregivers have the resources they need to support our youngest children. According to Michigan’s Governor Whitmer, essential workers are individuals “who are necessary to sustain or protect life.” Immediately, healthcare, public health, law enforcement, first responders, grocers, and their employees come to mind. A group that generally doesn’t make the top of this list are early childcare providers without whom healthcare, law enforcement, and others with young children would be unable to perform critical life sustaining services for our community. As early childcare providers, you are essential, and we know there is an evolving set of needs to address during this pandemic. We stand ready to help you meet those needs.
