March 30, 2020 - Message to the Community


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."

Downtown Home & Garden donates to MAP

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.


Loose Knit, Loose Threads & ISR Feeds donated a box of hats, scarves, mittens and gloves. Donations like this are crucial to the population we serve and a truly appreciated by MAP and our program participants.

Community Partnership Shout Out:

Food Gatherers 

MAP's community partnership with Food Gatherers impacts the lives of many people who live in Washtenaw County. In June, Food Gatherers awarded MAP a grant which allowed MAP to purchase stock food items for our food pantry. Additionally, Food Gatherers provides approximately 3000 pounds of food each month for our pantry. Thank you, Food Gatherers, for fighting hunger where we live and for being a valued community partner!
