Remembering and honoring our neighbors during the Homeless Persons’ Memorial Day Service
Advantage Health is proud to participate in the Homeless Memorial Service on Thursday, December 21 at The Cathedral Church of St. Paul Detroit at 1 p.m. Food will be provided to all in attendance from Capuchin Soup Kitchen.
This annual service normally brings in hundreds of local residents to honor and pray for those homeless individuals who have died. After all, every person deserves the respect and dignity that comes with a final blessing. Many of those in attendance for the service in past years have been homeless themselves.
When it comes to supporting our homeless neighbors, a little goes a long way. Many of our patients experience poverty and housing insecurity. A donation of $300 can pay for an annual physical for one homeless person. Advantage Health appreciates donations from those attendees who are able.
Advantage Health, partnering with other local charitable organizations, once again conducted a winter clothes and resource drive that will be distributed to homeless individuals through a variety of ways. These clothes go a long way to helping our homeless neighbors during the cold, winter months.
As we head into 2024, let’s remember those homeless who are less fortunate and need our collective help and prayers with generous donations. Advantage Health Centers will apply 100 percent of your monetary donation to purchase clothes and other resources to our community partners who service homeless populations. Over the years those partners have included:
- Beyond The Gates
- Covenant House
- Detroit Rescue Mission Ministries
- Elmhurst Home Inc.
- Fort Street Presbyterian Church
- Mariner’s Inn
- Matrix Off The Streets
- Naomi’s Nest
- Open Door Rescue Mission Ministries
- Operation Get Down
- Phillip Mission House
- Salvation Army
