Quote from the CEO Jan Little:
“Michigan Ability Partners office is closed but all staff are continuing to work remotely to ensure the safety and security of our participants. We continue to make rent payments for our housing participants, check in on people receiving employment services and help them if they become laid off. Our Representative Payee Department is paying bills and getting funds to those in the program. Staff have purchased food and supplies for the Veterans in our transitional housing and for those in permanent housing who may not be able to get out. This is a uncertain time for all of us and we especially support those we serve with mental health challenges and other disabilities that make this time even more frightening. MAP appreciates the support of our friends, donors and funders during the COVID-19 Crisis."

MAP received a most generous donation from Kelly Vore at Downtown Home and Garden. MAP received over seven boxes of warm winter clothing and footwear from the extraordinarily wonderful folks at Ann Arbor's favorite garden supply and home store. MAP's participants were all smiles as they received brand new Carhart and Stormy Kromer flannels, union suits, jeans, Keen boots and non-slip work shoes, jackets and fleece.
