Mission Statement

Guided by our belief that no one should live in poverty, Wayne Metro empowers people and communities to be strong, healthy and thriving. Through our work to diminish poverty, we envision communities where all people have hope and opportunities to realize their full potential.


Founded in 1971, Wayne Metro Community Action Agency (Wayne Metro) provides essential services, diversified programming, and community resources to low- and moderate-income individuals and families throughout all of Wayne County. Over the last four decades, the Agency’s budget has grown from $100,000 to over $30 million while continuing to maintain a low administrative rate (8%) that allows $.92 of every funded or donated dollar to be utilized for direct client services.

As a result of this outstanding programmatic and fiscal track record serving Out-Wayne County, the State of Michigan named Wayne Metro the Interim Community Action Agency for the City of Detroit in Spring 2013, with the designation becoming permanent in 2015. Today, Wayne Metro supports all of Wayne County with more than 50 programs with over 300 employees, and is proud to be one of the most innovative Community Action Agencies in the entire country.

Wayne Metro has good training for Volunteer Income Tax Assistance volunteers so I felt ready when I went to volunteer. I learned a lot about taxes while helping others!

I am very likely to recommend this organization to a friend because I was treated with the utmost respect while getting help to save energy and money. It is so great to know that there is an organiztion like WM out there that really does care about people.
