S. A. Y. Detroit

S.A.Y. Detroit is a fully formed 501(c) (3) charity aimed at improving the lives of the neediest citizens, through shelter, food, medical care, volunteer efforts and education. It serves as the umbrella for ongoing major projects including A Time to Help, S.A.Y. Detroit Family Health Clinic, and Working Homes/Working Families.

S.A.Y. Detroit was formed in February, 2006, after Mitch Albom went public with a plea to do as much for the homeless all winter as the city was doing over a Super Bowl weekend. He spent a night in a shelter to call attention to the issue. The response was overwhelming, and S.A.Y. (Super All Year Detroit) was born.

Since then, its accomplishments include:

  • the nation’s first full-time medical clinic for homeless children and their mothers
  • a state-of-the-art kitchen at the Michigan Veterans Foundation
  • a full-time day care center for the children of homeless women who are in transition or searching for work
  • Newly refurbished homes for poor but working families, that are deeded over to them after two years of occupancy
  • The funding of dozens of projects for Detroit area agencies
