A new website was launched Tuesday that offers immigrants information about services and non-immigrants helpful details about metro Detroit’s diverse communities.

Called “Welcome Mat,” the online, searchable database is part of several programs by Global Detroit to try to make metro Detroit more open to immigrants. It’s funded by the W.K. Kellogg Foundation.
