Cass Green: Creates jobs for mentally disabled people in the Detroit area helping to make door mats out of abandoned tires in the neighborhoods and shredding paper to be recycled. Our groups will be working along side the Cass workers to make door mats as well.
We will also have the opportunity to work in the shredding warehouse. Separating and shredding paper to be recycled.
Cass Soup Kitchen: Our youth will be fed and will help feed the mentally disabled workers and homeless in the community. We will eat breakfast, lunch and dinner each day at the Soup Kitchen. At least one day in the week we will work to help prepare and serve in the soup kitchen ourselves.
Cass Community Services began a Tiny Homes community in the heart of the city. Providing opportunities for the once homeless to work to become home owners. Our youth will have the opportunity to work in the tiny homes community along side the residents in sprucing up the landscape and making sure everything is tidy in the tiny community.
Our group will be housed at Cass Community UMC. We will be the sole group there. We will be sleeping on cots that came from Jenson Collins-UMC camp so no air mattresses are needed.
