Words from our Founding Director

Our country's birthday is on the horizon, and celebrations are in order. We're getting used to that good smell of barbeque hot dogs and hamburgers, the sound of birds chirping and dogs playfully barking, and the feel of the hot summer sun beaming down. We know it won't last forever, but it's okay. We appreciate it a little more each year, since we know it's all temporary. On the other hand, homelessness and poverty are permanent issues in some people's lives.

Wayne State's new student orientation is this month, and at the HIGH Program we want all incoming students to have the same resources and opportunities to succeed. We are taking steps, with your help, to make sure we are there for those students who may need our help and not yet realize that we are here for them.
