100 Years of Helping the Homeless

By Dr. Chad Audi

It’s hard to believe, but next year is the 100th anniversary of the Detroit Rescue Mission Ministries (DRMM). That means a lot to us. We have been servicing the Detroit-area community for a very long time and are quite proud of our accomplishments and thousands of success stories throughout the years.

On a daily basis, we service 1,200 to 1,300 people. Our program “graduates” are now employed in all walks of life. DRMM alumni include police officers, firefighters, store managers, hotel employees, medical staff, nonprofit agency employees, and Detroit Rescue Mission staff who are giving back to the agency that gave them new lives. Even the popular, national recording artist known as KEM at one time sought shelter at our Mission. Now, look at him!

As a result, DRMM is proud to contribute to the economy and well-being of the City of Detroit and the State of Michigan. Thousands of our clients have returned to society as productive citizens. They often share with the community firsthand testimonies of how their lives have been dramatically changed. Over the next 100 years, DRMM plans to continue producing success stories while increasing public awareness of our agency’s programs. We are constantly looking for new ideas to enhance our services and meet the new needs of the community. Let me know your thoughts and ideas.

As with most non-profits, we couldn’t do what we do with out the financial and physical support of people in the community. We depend on our supporters and donors to give money and other items, to pray with us, and volunteer their time. We salute them and thank them. The Detroit Rescue Mission has been a vital part of the community for a very long time and we are going to continue to be a part of the community for a very long time.
