The Dream Fund

The Dream Fund

Mitch Albom started the Dream Fund at the College for Creative Studies in 1992 to provide funding for under-served children to participate in the arts and to instill confidence in our youth.  Since that time, CCS has utilized the Dream Fund to support visual, performing, summer “Week at a Time” youth scholarships, community art programs, and even the Detroit 300 project in 2001.

The Dream Fund has raised over $115,000 in scholarships since its inception in 1991.

A Hole in the Roof Foundation

A Hole in the Roof Foundation

The mission of A Hole in the Roof Foundation is to help faith groups of every denomination who care for the homeless to repair the spaces in which they carry out their work and offer their services.  The seed that gave root to the Foundation – and also inspired its name – is the I Am My Brother's Keeper church in Detroit, MI.  Here, despite a gaping hole in the roof, and no matter how harsh the weather, the pastor tends to his community to provide spiritual nourishment and a sanctuary for the homeless.

S.A.Y. Detroit Family Health Clinic

In December of 2008, S.A.Y. Detroit opened the city’s first ever free medical clinic dedicated solely to homeless children and their mothers. Services are FREE OF CHARGE to all children and adult women who are uninsured or under-insured.  The Clinic provides a wide range of free maintenance and preventive health services.  On-site diagnostic equipment assists the medical professionals in addressing a variety of health conditions, and health education is provided on site for individual clients and small groups. It was made possible largely through the generosity and hard work of Cooper Standard Automotive and its CEO, Jim McElya.
