MCREST Has a New Building!

MCREST_5703.jpg

Right now, more than 1,000 children are experiencing homelessness in Macomb County. As our community faces job loss and eviction, MCREST’s support services are more imperative than ever.

By partnering with foundations, private donors, and the greater community, MCREST successfully raised $1.6 million through a capital campaign to renovate a Mt. Clemens building to serve as a permanent women and children’s shelter. The new shelter will be opened to guests in early 2022 and will serve more than 45 women and children with emergency shelter, reducing the traumatic impact of homelessness in children by giving families a stable location to transition to self-reliance. Men experiencing homelessness will continue to be sheltered and receive support services through MCREST’s partner churches.

As they transition to self-reliance, women and children in the new facility will be offered wraparound services, including transportation and childcare assistance, self-improvement classes, student tutoring, and job readiness and job placement support. MCREST also will expand its Learning & Resource Center at the new shelter to better serve individuals experiencing homelessness in Macomb County with job readiness and job placement support services. The expansion of the Learning & Resource Center aligns with MCREST’s focus during recent years on “housing first” interventions, as well as improving opportunities for economic self-sufficiency.

MCREST is committed to assisting every individual and family entering our program to successfully transition to self-reliance.

The support provided by MCREST is integral to our communities; we provide necessary care for our neighbors who are most in need. Join our mission of combatting homelessness, and together, we can help our neighbors.
