About this Campaign

Community and Home Supports is a Detroit, Michigan based charity that that is focused on providing our client's critical resources they need to prevent becoming homeless and the ability to sustain their lives. These critical resources include:

Transportation

Bus Tickets Bus Passes Vehicle Purchase & Maintenace Title / Plate / Registration / Insurance Fees Traffic / Parking Tickets

Housing

Storage / Moving Security Deposit Utility Support Rent / Morgage Payments

Identity Documentation / Services Applications

Drivers Licence / State ID Birth Certificate Social Security Number Support filling out service support forms for state aide

Our organization also believes the most impactful way to support our community members that have become or experience chronic homelessness is providing rapid re-housing.

Rapid re-housing places a priority on moving a family or individual experiencing homelessness into permanent housing as quickly as possible, ideally within 30 days of a client becoming homeless and entering a program. While originally aimed primarily at people experiencing homelessness due to short-term financial crises, programs across the country have begun to assist individuals and families who are traditionally perceived as more difficult to serve. This includes people with limited or no income, survivors of domestic violence, and those with substance abuse issues. Although the duration of financial assistance may vary, many programs find that, on average, four to six months of financial assistance is sufficient to stably re-house a household.
