Community Partners in Action Program
The collaboration helps families and students get the important services they need while allowing teachers and school officials to concentrate on their most important duty - educating tomorrow's leaders. In January 2007, representative from the U.S. Department of Education came to DTM Elementary School to congratulate students and staff on winning a prestigious national award. DTM was the only school in Michigan chosen for the U.S. Secretary of Education's Back to School Initiative for being close to achieving the goals of the federal No Child Left Behind Act.

Durant-Tuuri-Mott After-School Program:
MHP goal is to build the capacity of after-school program providers so that they can deliver high quality services in a caring and supportive environment. Holistic programs play an essential part in keeping young people safe and focused.
MHP has developed a model of service delivery, which allows parents and community residents to "shop" for the needs of the families under one roof or centralized location. We want to ensure that families' needs are met through comprehensive services that lead them toward stability.
