Macomb County Rotating Emergency Shelter Team

Rating: 4 stars   1 review

Issues: Homeless & Housing

Location: 20415 Erin Roseville MI 48066 USA

Mission: A Macomb County non-profit agency consisting of a center for intake, assessment, referral and support for the homeless, including emergency shelter within area host churches, a safe haven and an opportunity to choose a path that can enable them to become self-sufficient
Programs: We provide a safe environment for shelter and food for those who have found themselves in a homeless situation. With collaboration with other agencies, we also provide medical help and counseling for mental health and/or substance abuse. The client registers with our office where we provide an assessment, referrals, drug and alcohol testing, and means for transportation to the hosting church. They will stay there for 30 days or can be nominated to our 90-day intensive case management program, called Choose A Path (CAP) where they are given goals to reach each week, participate in a mandatory savings plan, support groups as needed, weekly meetings and drug tests. This program has a 32% success rate for obtaining a place to live when leaving the program. Clients are provided for all their basic needs so their efforts can be concentrated on working and finding a home again. We are building a new facility for the severely mentally ill homeless men, drop-in center for homeless,job training, case management and access in one building for services from macomb county agencies.

This is a unique program. We provide shelter withing local churces on a rotating schedule.We provide support to help them gain employment and help with housing.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Reading the reports of the guests that making it after they have left the program.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Meeting people who have the same goal of providing shelter and care for the guests.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Completely giving and going up time out of their days to run the programs at each faciclity.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Provide housing, medical and dental care. Reinvest to kieep the program going. implement other programs needed in this county.
