Economy in SE Michigan

The economy in 2010 will continue to worsen as long as people continue to lose their jobs, homes, and unemployment benefits. Michigan has one of the highest unemployment rates and the situation may become dire if help is not on the way. Nonprofit organizations are feeling the pinch as needs (demand) increase but few resources are available (supply). Here are a few articles that describes the situation:
