Working Homes/Working Families

Working Homes/Working Families is a new charity devoted to providing homes for working families in need of decent housing. Homes that are donated or abandoned are rehabbed with the help of volunteers from A Time to Help and the Detroit Rescue Mission Ministries.

The Wilson family, pictured below, was the first recipient of a home in October 2011.  Mitch Albom wrote about Kristy and Armando, and their eight children, who were being evicted out of their sewage and mold-filled home. With the help of Working Homes/Working Families, they now have a clean and safe home. 

If you know of homes that may be repurposed by Working Homes/Working Families, please contact the Detroit Rescue Mission Ministries at (313) 993-4700 or www.drmm.org, or use this form here.  To help fund the project, please go here
