Making a home away from home

As you can imagine, it takes a lot to make our House feel like a home-away-from-home for families in need. We are always looking for donations of food, toys, and supplies. Having these items donated offsets many of our costs.

The best way to donate items to the RMHC Detroit house is by purchasing items from our Amazon Wishlist. By selecting items from the Amazon wishlist it ensures that you are able to give us exactly what we need, and nothing goes to waste. You simply select and purchase items from the list, and it gets shipped directly to us. Super easy right?

Your gift makes an impact.

Donations of all types help ease financial burdens, bridge access to health care, and above all- help children heal better and faster. We make sure each donation is used in a way that benefits the mission of the House.

  • A monetary donation can go to covering the cost of a family’s stay, which is typically around $200 per night.
  • We incur thousands of dollars of upkeep and renovation costs per year. A donation of money or services can help offset these costs.
  • We also use donations to keep the House stocked with food, toys, and supplies.

No matter the size, the cumulative impact of gifts from our donors allow us to keep our doors open.
