Hydrate Detroit

Water is a Human Right

About Us

Mission Statement

We are a volunteer-led alliance of compassionate citizens of Detroit and their international allies working to bring emergency relief to families facing water shut offs while advocating for an income-based Water Affordability Plan in Detroit.

Rapid Relief

We deliver bottled water, water coolers, jugs, rainwater catchment barrels, filters, and other supplies to families. Supplies.


We believe that water is a human right. We work towards a Water Affordability Plan for all. The plan, created by Michigan Welfare Rights Organization and others, caps your utility payment at 2.5% of monthly income.
