Since 2008, we have led the effort to protect families and provide emergency food, through our clients' choice pantry model, to the residents of Detroit's North End. Today, we are positioned in the battle to regain "equity" and protect our communities as we face gentrification and land grabbing.
The Storehouse of Hope provides emergency food provides emergency food, personal care services, referrals, needed resources and specific education and development activities designed to enhance human dignity and sustain families and individuals living in the North End of the city of Detroit, specifically, zip codes 48202 and 48211. The work of the Storehouse of Hope is conducted through community outreach, advocacy and collaboration.
Recently, the scope of our work broadened to include the creation of the FIRST Community Land Trust (CLT) to be established in the city of Detroit. We aim to protect families in these critical and uncertain times. We cannot achieve our goals alone. Find out how you can help.
