The Everly Collective is a hub for health equity and social justice innovation through collaborative enterprise development and community engagement. We sustain individual and community wellness by addressing social determinants of health through social entrepreneurship, healing justice programs, and creative arts.
We reside in the traditional and contemporary lands of the Anishinaabeg – Three Fires Confederacy of Ojibwe, Odawa and Potawatomi peoples. We recognize Michigan’s Native Nations, historic Indigenous communities in Michigan, Indigenous individuals and communities who live here now, and those who were forcibly removed from their homelands by the state. In offering this land acknowledgement, we affirm Indigenous sovereignty, history and solidarity.
