To the Metro Detroit Youth Clubs community:
These are unprecedented times that are shaping our way of life. The arrival of the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) brought with it rapid change and disruption. We are most grateful for the clear guidance and support we are receiving the State of Michigan, the Centers for Disease Control and the leadership of Wayne, Oakland and Macomb counties and their respective health departments.
While our locations closed in response to Governor Whitmer’s executive order, the MDYC Club Directors and leadership team have developed an aggressive plan to serve our Club members and the community. MDYC’s strength and impact are built on the powerful connection Club members have with the MDYC professional team. Following Governor Whitmer’s “Stay Home, Stay Safe” executive order, MDYC launched an outreach effort to identify the basic needs and concerns of Club members and their families. We are connecting families in need of mental health support to professionals who are ready to assist them. We are identifying families concerned about food security and linking them to local resources. We are developing resources and programming to engage MDYC Club members so they can learn, grow, lead and succeed in this environment as well.
We invite MDYC Club families to complete the following online form so we can identify emerging needs. You will also find a comprehensive list of local community resources. Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me directly at email@example.com. Our commitment to you and your children is unwavering.
