Standing together against COVID-19

The responsibility that we have to care for the well-being of families that we serve is something that we take very seriously.  The health and well-being of our families is very important to us. 

We are continually doing what is necessary to protect the families we serve, our staff, and all of our partners in service. We are working with the City of Detroit, the Homeless Action Network of Detroit (HAND), and many other partners to continue providing services to families in our shelter and in our housing programs amid the COVID-19 crisis.

Shelter:If you are in need of emergency shelter for your household or if your household is in need of a safe space as a result of domestic violence, please call 313-484-4449 to request emergency support between 7:00AM and 8:30PM seven days a week.For assistance after hours, please call 313-271-9100.
