A Time to Help Genesis House III Women’s Treatment Facility – March 2018

A Time to Help Genesis House III Women’s Treatment Facility – March 2018

ATTH volunteers will paint the first-floor main hallway and stairwell at the Detroit Rescue Mission Ministries’ Genesis House III shelter for women and children. If there is time, we’ll also sand the stair railings in the main foyer. The DRMM, which is S.A.Y. Detroit’s operating partner, offers both transitional and permanent housing in its programs to prevent any return to homelessness and addiction. DRMM believes everyone deserves care, a warm meal and a safe place to rest your head.
