A Time To Help was established in 1997 as a means of galvanizing the people of Detroit to volunteer on a regular basis. A Time To Help has staged more than 100 monthly projects ranging from building houses, delivering meals, beautifying city streets, running adoption fairs, repairing homeless shelters, packing food, and hosting an annual Christmas party to a shelter for battered women.
Albom and radio co-host Ken Brown lead each project and try to use the group as a catalyst to increase volunteerism Volunteers should be at least 18 years old, although 16 and 17 year old youth may come if accompanied by one adult supervisor for every four youths.

The Michigan Urban Farming Initiative is a 501(c) (3) non-profit organization that seeks to engage community members in sustainable agriculture. Challenges to metro-Detroit citizens (e.g., vacant land, poor diet, nutritional illiteracy, and food insecurity) present a unique opportunity for community-supported agriculture. By using agriculture as a platform to promote education, sustainability, and community, MUFI strengthens neighborhood involvement to achieve long-term improvement.
