Making a home away from home
As you can imagine, it takes a lot to make our House feel like a home-away-from-home for families in need. We are always looking for donations of food, toys, and supplies. Having these items donated offsets many of our costs.
Any donated items can be dropped off or sent directly to The House:
4707 St. Antoine, Suite 200
Detroit, MI 48201

Where Donations Go
Your gift makes an impact.
Donations of all types help ease financial burdens, bridge access to health care, and above all- help children heal better and faster. We make sure each donation is used in a way that benefits the mission of the House.
- A monetary donation can go to covering the cost of a family’s stay. We only ask that families give $10 per night, while the actual cost of a stay is around $195 per night.
- We incur thousands of dollars of upkeep and renovation costs per year. A donation of money or services can help offset these costs.
- We also use donations to keep the House stocked with food, toys, and supplies.
No matter the size, the cumulative impact of gifts from our donors allow us to keep our doors open.
