Detroit Homeless Shelters & Services For The Needy

Welcome to our Detroit, Michigan Homeless Shelters and Services for the needy page. Below are all of the homeless shelters and services for the needy that provide help to those in need for Detroit, MI and surrounding cities.

We also provide other homeless resources such as transitional resources for the homeless. Homeless clinic and treatment center resources are also provided on the right navigational bar.
