I am now looking to give back and help others find the Lord and was wondering if there was anything you could use me for…please let me know if God leads you to have me volunteer or perhaps come tell the ladies my story…either way… thank you and God bless.

  5. A group of friends are gathering things to pass out to the homeless in Detroit.. Where is a good place where the homeless are to pass these items out?

    • Dear Shauna:
      Thank you so much for inquiring about how to best serve the hungry and homeless population in Detroit. There are several organizations, like the Detroit Rescue Mission Ministries, that work year-round to help those in need. I would suggest setting up a day where you can come in and help serve meals, or pass out the items that you are donating. It’s truly the best way to support the homeless. If you’d like more information, contact Rachael Williams, DRMM Director of Volunteer Services, at 313-993-4700 ext. 4715. Thank you, and God Bless!
