Week Of Service To Help MISSION House In Ann Arbor

MISSION
MISSION

The Ann Arbor area's homeless community is getting some help next week from local Presbyterian churches. About 300 volunteers will spend time working on MISSION's home on Stone School Road.  

The house is a place where homeless people can get food, camping supplies, and visit friends.  MISSION Board Member Seth Best is excited what a garden at the house will mean for the community.  He says not only will it help them feed homeless people at the house, but surplus food can go to other non-profit organizations.

They also plan to paint the house and build a handicap accessible deck next week.  

Best is pleased Ann Arbor and the county continue to talk about addressing homelessness and feels more affordable housing is needed.  That's because he says most entry level jobs don't pay well enough for people to afford a one-bedroom apartment in Ann Arbor.

Like many, I first came to this area when I started school at the University of Michigan, then fell in love with the community and haven’t left. After graduating from U of M in the mid 1990’s I interned at WDET for several years, while also working a variety of jobs in Ann Arbor. Then in 1999 I joined the WEMU news team.
