Project Dignity Outreach
Project Dignity Outreach was founded in 2013 with the goal of feeding Detroit’s homeless. Since its beginnings feeding the homeless in an abandoned lot in Southwest Detroit every sunday, Project Dignity Outreach has expanded its feeding and donation efforts and is growing more each week.
How You Can Help
We welcome monetary donations to help offset costs of providing hot, fresh food at our Community Picnics. Your donation will also go towards providing blankets, gloves, and socks for the cold winter months ahead. Any size donation is appreciated and needed. As we are a 501(c)3 organization, any donation you make is tax-deductible. 100% of your donation will go to feed the hungry in Detroit.
Why It Matters
Homeless people have many needs, but most importantly, they need a true friend. By true friend I mean someone who will stick by them no matter what. The stress of becoming homeless, and the stress of being homeless can cause a person to do some odd or extreme things, which will cause most people to recoil. But a true friend would not abandon a person when they become homeless. Other than a friend there are some things homeless people need or could certainly use while in their situation. Clean clothes that are in fairly good condition. Not only is it good for the homeless person’s self-esteem, it helps the homeless person to socialize in the realm of the non-homeless, if they at least don’t look like a homeless person. Dirty, ratty clothes are one of the biggest giveaways that a person is homeless. And so many people reject those who even look homeless. A decent meal. Toiletries for keeping clean and presentable.
