Words from our Founding Director

Jacqueline Wilson

Happy New Year!

January 2019

It’s January again, a month of hope and new beginnings.  A new year for promises and resolutions, where changes are welcomed with open arms. As with every New Year, we vow to make it different by eating healthier, exercising, or making a plethora of other goal.

For most college students January means new classes, goals, and promises. But for some students this month also comes with additional stress and deadlines. For them, it’s a continuation of struggles and feeling hopeless. Here at the HIGH Program, we help homeless and precariously housed students a Wayne State so they can focus on new goals and promises. Let’s come together to ensure that these students don’t have to choose between housing and education, let’s make sure they have both.

Queen Elizabeth II said “On our own, we cannot end wars or wipe out injustice, but the cumulative impact of thousands of small acts of goodness can be bigger than we imagine.” This year, let’s give back to our community. What better time is there to start giving back than now? Let’s make a promise to donate and give hope to help these hardworking students as they continue their education.
