Macomb County launches MATRIX resource to connect residents with health and human services
Macomb County's Human Services Coordinating Body (HSCB), in partnership with county officials, today launched MATRIX (Macomb's Access to Resource Information Xpress), a resource designed to link Macomb residents to health and human services. The program features a digital questionnaire that helps indicate residents' needs and immediately link them to county departments providing those services. It is available in English, Spanish, Arabic and Bengali. The program is also compatible with Jobs Access with Speech (JAWS) for the visually impaired.
MATRIX kiosks are located at the Macomb County Family Resource Center in Mt. Clemens, the VerKuilen Building in Clinton Township, the Max Thompson Family Resource Center in Warren, the SE Family Resource Center in St. Clair Shores and the Macomb Veteran's Food Bank at Vietnam Veterans of America (VVA) Chapter 154 in Clinton Township. MATRIX is also available online at: http://HCS.macombgov.org/HCS-portalofservicesurvey
"I encourage you and your family to use MATRIX as it provides helpful information and directly connects you with county resources when you need them," said Macomb County Executive Mark A. Hackel. "The most frequently requested county human services include health care assistance, veteran information, services for families with young children and senior citizen services - and MATRIX can help expedite your access to those things."
MATRIX is a project of the Macomb County Human Services Coordinating Body (HSCB), in partnership with the county of Macomb. The HSCB is the state designated community collaborative for the area. Its vision is to help build a county where community services are available and accessible to foster the development of individuals and families.
