We Appreciate Your Support!
The Macomb County Rotating Emergency Shelter Team (MCREST) shelters men, women, children and families for up to 90 days in congregations across Macomb County. The congregations provide meals, shower facilities, transportation and, when able, laundry services for our guests. MCREST operates year round providing case management, housing assistance and in collaboration with Downriver Community Services, medical care, mental and substance abuse counseling. During our guest’s stay case managers work with each individual and family to develop and implement a personalized housing plan that concentrates on overcoming barriers to self-reliance such as lack of income, poor money management, mental health issues, substance abuse, and a broken personal support system. MCREST is proud to provide a safe place where families and individuals can start over again and begin the transition of changing their lives.
MCREST is in need of donations to assist with sheltering our guests. Please drop off at the MCREST office located at:
20415 Erin Roseville, MI 48066
To set up a presentation at your work, for a foundation, educational institution, service organizations, or for any group looking to donate, sponsor, or participate in our cause, please contact April Fidler at (586) 415-5101 or .
