From musical preludes to student desk, chairs and chalkboards, Engaged Detroit Families created partnerships to meet the needs of not only the families enrolled in the program. With the financial support of National Parents Union, VELA Education Fund, The Skillman Foundation, Busy Bee Here To Help and Donations from Friends, we launched in September 2020. Our families would like to thank all of it's partners both local and national for making this work a success.
