About 65 clients of our Supportive Housing program attended its holiday party at St. Anne Catholic Church in southwest Detroit on Friday, December 9. The program helps homeless families and individuals receive the housing and the support services they need to stabilize and rebuild their lives.
The party was organized by our Supportive Housing staff and supporters of the program.
Everyone who attended enjoyed a hot and delicious full-course lunch served by the Supportive Housing staff and volunteers.
In addition, clients received gift packages of household and other useful items. Children at the event received toys delivered by Santa Claus.
We extend a special thanks to our sponsors who made this event possible, and who brought well-appreciated holiday cheer to the formerly homeless families and individuals we serve. These sponsors include:
