I head the biggest thing that people need is shoes!
I’ve contemplated for over a year and instinctively feel obligated to do something positive for the community once again. after seeing grown adults in the middle of winter with temperatures below freezing and having nothing but a t-shirt on I can’t help but move forward and turn this into a monthly.
I wish for this to be a continued gathering of minds to support and collect donations for the homeless in Detroit.
Please join us at a newly updated venue for many of us just to relax, hear quality music, while doing something which lifts the spirits to many of those who are less fortunate than ourselves.
Detroit Rescue Mission Ministries provides services ranging from emergency shelter to job training.
Every day, the services we provide touch the lives of more than 1,400 men, women and children in the Detroit community.
The DRMM is much more than a homeless shelter or soup kitchen. Our evidence-based services address the needs of the whole individual. We assist those who are addicted to drugs and alcohol toward their goal of obtaining sobriety.
We help teen mothers finish high school and learn critical parenting skills. We help those recently released from prison obtain employability skills, and find housing and gainful employment. We work with S.A.Y. Detroit Family Health Clinic to provide 24-hour medical care to children and families.
Yet, there is more that can be done.
The need for our services has gone up 30%. Read more about the vital services we provide and consider making a donation to help us meet the expanding needs and continue this important work.
