Community resources 

Eastpointe Community Schools, in partnership with our community, will provide a safe and supportive environment that engages students and prepares them to be successful in the future.

However, we also recognize that there are families in our district who may be in need of assistance outside the school environment. To help provide our families with available resources in our community, we have collected a list of Macomb County community resources that may provide services for housing, health and other daily needs. If you need help or are unsure of where to begin, please contact your child's school.
