• About School and Community Facilitators

    The HPS School and Community Facilitators are responsible for bridging the gap between our school district and the city of Hamtramck. We believe that HPS is the HEART of the city and we are passionate about providing our families with local resources and agencies.

    • Visiting families and students in their homes as required for the purpose of assessing situations, improving communications, and providing information regarding school policies and programs
    • We work closely with the ELD Dept, Special Services Dept, Pupil Services Dept, and all HPS schools to support all students and family members
    • Assisting refugees and newcomers with their transition
    • Run a fully stocked Clothing Closet filled with new and donated clothing, coats, etc for students and their families
