Wayne State University HIGH Program receives grant

DETROIT — The Junior League of Detroit has generously awarded a $500 Community Assistance Program grant to Wayne State University’s Helping Individuals Go Higher (HIGH) Program to continue efforts to address the need of homeless and precariously housed students.

The Community Assistance Program supports the Junior League of Detroit's efforts to participate in community-based collaborative partnerships that broaden the educational, cultural, recreational and health opportunities for families living in Wayne County and to promote voluntarism. 

Founded in 2013 by Jaqueline Wilson, the HIGH Program is dedicated to ensuring that no student has to abandon their dream of obtaining a degree solely because of housing or financial challenges. The program is proud to be part of the Junior League’s commitment to Detroit.
