HANDHomelessness…Yes it happens. Foreclosures, employment lay-offs, mothers escaping domestic violence situations, even children, and yes, hard working discharged American soldiers become homeless.

The Homeless Action Network of Detroit (HAND) has over seventeen years experience serving as the Lead Agency for the Continuum of Care for the cities of Detroit, Hamtramck and Highland Park, Michigan. The Continuum of Care (CoC) is a planning, coordinating and decision-making body comprised of service providers; representatives from the city, county and state government; faith- based organizations; educational agencies; and individuals from the community.

HAND (Homeless Action Network of Detroit) and the committee for the 2014 homeless awareness walk hope you can join them in their effort. During the week of November 15th-23rd  it is National Homelessness Week and their committee will be hosting the 18th annual walk to close things out. The walk will be this Saturday, November 22, 2014 at the New Center One 3031 W. Grand Blvd. Registrations is from 9:30 am-11 am with the walk starting promptly at 11 am.

On November 22, 2014, the Homeless Action Network of Detroit (HAND) will host its 18th Annual Walk  
Against Homelessness. As a finale to Michigan’s Homeless Awareness Week (November 15-23, 2014), the Walk increases awareness of homelessness while raising support for HAND to carry out its mission of creating  permanent solutions to homelessness in our community.
Each year hard working Americans become homeless due to foreclosures, employment layoffs, and domestic  violence situations, just to name a few. We invite you to join HAND and our partners to help change what  happens to our neighbors, friends and relatives.
By way of a donation, your support will go a long way to assist our community and will also provide an opportunity for you to introduce your business, products, and/or services to our network of supporters, families, and friends. Donations such as granola or cereal bars, bottled water, and fruit are just a few ways in which you can become involved. Contributions may be tax-deductible as HAND is a 501 (c) 3 organization.
