Moms for Moms

You know that being a mom is the toughest thing you’ve ever done, as well as the most rewarding. Now, imagine juggling a million things as you care for your children—and worrying about where your kids are going to sleep.

Imagine being homeless with your children. 


That's why MCREST, thanks to your generosity, has raised $1.6 million to transform a building that will provide temporary shelter, food, educational resources, job training and placement, and childcare for Macomb County women and children as they transition to self-reliance. 

We're almost there! Now, we need your help to get us over the finish line—and create a warm and caring environment for mothers experiencing homelessness and their children by furnishing the new shelter. 

Right now, you have the power to make an incredible difference, thanks to this limited time offer:

Christian Financial Credit Union
 will match your gift up to $10,000 towards 
our Mother's Day Matching Challenge
 before midnight, May 31.


Double your impact! Give now through May 31.

Because of you, we’re on our way to finishing a permanent women and children’s shelter right here in Macomb!

Your support has made this possible and we thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

Now that we have a new building, we’re working hard to make it a comfortable and transformational space for our families. And you can help!

    • Construction on our new building is underway! But we need to equip it with all furnishings required for this undertaking. Donate today and get us across the finish line!

    • You can help us by donating necessities such as cookware to provide healthy meals, sheets, blankets, pillows, or baby items. It’s the things we take for granted that mean the most to children and families transitioning to independence!
