Challenge

As downtown Detroit shutter its doors, those suffering from homelessness are left with few options for food and shelter. At a time when hygiene is critical to survival, Detroit's homeless are left with even fewer options for restrooms.

Solution

The Pope Francis Center will continue to provide the much-needed services to the community during the COVID-19 outbreak. We have modified our program to be completely outside and accessible to all who need our help with food and medical attention.

Long-Term Impact

The Pope Francis Center will stay committed to protecting the men and women who have no other resources. With the help from our community, we will survive this pandemic.
