Detroit Financial Well-Being Innovation Challenge Launch Poster

Detroit Financial Well-Being Innovation Challenge Launch PosterEvery family deserves access to the resources and support they need to become financially stable — but the financial deck is stacked against Detroiters. How can we work together to unstack the deck, so that Detroiters have more opportunities to thrive financially?

From 1 to 2:30 p.m. EST on Wednesday, Feb. 2, United Way for Southeastern Michigan, in partnership with University of Michigan’s Poverty Solutions, will celebrate the official launch of the Detroit Financial Well-being Innovation Challenge! This revolutionary initiative challenges individuals and organizations alike to create bold new solutions to the systemic problems standing in the way of Detroiters’ financial stability — from low incomes and high expenses to unaffordable credit and inaccessible banking — and we want you to join us. 

This event will include an introduction to the challenge and how to participate, as well as interactive idea-sharing activities and guest speakers and performers, including:

  • Stephen Henderson – host, Detroit Today;
  • H. Luke Shaefer – director, U-M Poverty Solutions;
  • Darienne Hudson – CEO, United Way for Southeastern Michigan;
  • Ber-Henda Williams – founder, The Power of Girlhood; and 
  • Orlando Bailey, engagement director at BridgeDetroit, as master of ceremonies.
The event is free and open to potential applicant organizations, stakeholders, and members of the public.
