Rebuilding Our Community — One Life at a Time
Detroit Rescue Mission Ministries provides services ranging from emergency shelter to job training. Every day, the services we provide touch the lives of more than 1,800 men, women and children in the Detroit community. The DRMM is much more than a homeless shelter or soup kitchen. Our evidence-based services address the needs of the whole individual. We assist those who are addicted to drugs and alcohol toward their goal of obtaining sobriety. We help teen mothers finish high school and learn critical parenting skills. We help those recently released from prison obtain employability skills, and find housing and gainful employment. We work with S.A.Y. Detroit/DRMM Family Health Clinic to provide free medical care to children and families. Yet, there is more that can be done.
For residents who receive shelter and stay overnight, DRMM provides meals and the opportunity to shower and receive new clothing items. A healthy, nourishing meal could be the first step towards long-term recovery, and a healthier, stable life.
From homeless veterans to men seeking recovery from substance abuse, from women struggling to make ends-meet, to homeless women with children – DRMM offers both transitional and permanent housing to prevent any return to homelessness and addiction. DRMM believes everyone deserves care, a warm meal and a safe place to rest your head.
DRMM offers two major programs for those struggling with addictions – withdrawal management (formerly called detoxification) and substance abuse treatment. A wide variety of agencies such as the Michigan Department of Corrections, Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Agency and Detroit Wayne Integrated Health Network provide referrals and funding for treatment for specific populations. Individuals with addictions who do not meet their guidelines and have no insurance are provided treatment through contributions made by our individual donors.
In The Community
Here at Detroit Rescue Mission Ministries we are dedicated to the various types of people who make up our growing community. As a non-profit, faith-based organization we take pride in helping our neighbors who are hurting, hungry and homeless, no matter what phase they are their life. And we’ve been dedicated to this life of service to our community for 106 years!
As a multi-faceted non-profit organization, DRMM comes equipped with a variety of services and programs to help the homeless, addicted and spiritually lost restore and rebuild their lives for a bigger, brighter future. Many of these services and programs do not fit the mold of most rescue missions, this is what sets DRMM aside from the others – we shut our doors on no one. We believe that everyone deserves a new beginning, a new life and a new chance to succeed!
What Makes DRMM Unique
The Detroit Rescue Mission Ministries has been serving Detroit’s homeless and addicted communities since 1909, and is one of the largest housing and treatment providers in the Detroit Metro area. However, it is our full Continuum of Care that we provide to those who seek our services, as well as our diverse staff and commitment to spiritual life that make our programs and organization truly unique among others in the community.
