What We Do

It's simple! We help people in need. We do that by focusing on housing, community-based efforts including spirituality, education, awareness, clothing and food. 


We're continually working hard to improve communities throughout the City of Detroit. If you're interested to see what we've been doing recently (especially if you want to help), call us for a complete project list.


If you have able hands, we want your help. Whether it's serving food aid in a kitchen, painting walls of a newly repaired home, or collecting donations, we need you. And so do communities in need.

Our founder and a majority of our staff have been through experiences and difficulties that come along with homelessness. Most people can’t imagine what it’s like to go hungry and have no place to live, but it happens - and we think it’s a shame that in a country as great as ours, anyone should.

With our focus on community development, we provide transitional, emergency, supportive and permanent housing while providing all necessary resources to help sustain, equip and empower every individual from the barriers that keep them homeless. Our involvement in the community also includes restoring, renovating and building new housing, teaching what we've learned, feeding and clothing the community, blight removal and creating jobs, particularly in the green industry.

At TPHM, we’re all looking to make a difference. We believe that by focusing on communities, we’re going to make the most substantial impact. The world is made up of these important social connections and if you foster them positively, they’ll pay huge dividends - in love, care, and a better world.
