I love living in Woodhaven. My only complaint would be the train that runs over Van Horn, Allen and Fort street. There are plenty of areas to go shopping, and lots of restaurants in the area as well. Everyone has been very friendly that I've encountered. I like that there are many options for me to go shopping at. There's a Target, Meijer and WalMart all within the same area. Other smaller stores make it convenient to find what you're looking for. Also the freeway is close by making the commute to other cities easy and convenient. All the surrounding cities are nice as well. I feel very safe in this city, never worry about going out at night. The schools look very nice. Every where I've gone it seems like they're always hiring with allows for more opportunities for people. There are a lot of healthy places to get food, Tropical Smoothie, and a farmers market down the street. Woodhaven is in general a great city.

I really like how the community comes together in a time of need. There has been many times a family, child, and organization may need volunteers or money raised to help their cause and Woodhaven Michigan does just that! My cheer mate's mother suddenly was killed in a motor vehicle accident and the community stepped up to pay for whatever educational/sport need she may have until she graduates! It was really special to see the worry on her and her families faces turn into happiness when they heard the news! Recently, a little girl was hit by a car and they took off from the scene leaving her family to pick up the pieces and be burdened with all the medical bills! The community again rose to the occasion and raised money for her medical bills and for her family to be able to be with her at her bedside as she recovers without worrying about how they will get money for transportation and overnight stays when needed. This is a wonderful community and I am proud to be a resident.
Woodhaven has been a great place to live and grow up in. The community is great and the district is perfect! Woodhaven is also in the middle of everything downriver and nothing takes more than 15 minutes to get too!
