Providing Homes For Working Families in Need of Desperate Housing
The idea of Working Homes/Working Families is simple. Detroit has too many empty or abandoned houses. It also has too many families who lack a decent place to live. By encouraging the donation of homes that would otherwise go unused, then utilizing the efforts of volunteers to refurbish those homes, needy working families can be given a decent, clean place to live, one they must keep up while continuing to work.
Working Homes/Working Families aims to encourage efforts between many parties. Cities thrive through neighborhoods. Neighborhoods need decent houses and people in them.
If you are interested in donating a house (significant write-offs may be possible), volunteering to refurbish, or just want to know more, please contact us at S.A.Y. Detroit at (313) 826-0111 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
