Founded in 1909, The Detroit Rescue Mission Ministries has embarked upon its 107th year of continued service providing food, shelter and services to intervene where homelessness and substance addiction occur. DRMM is a faith-based, non-profit organization, recognized by the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF) and has devoted a wealth of resources to meet the basic needs of humanity while motivating individuals to rebuild their lives, one life at a time. The Detroit Rescue Mission Ministries is one of the largest providers in the fight against homelessness and substance abuse in the country.
DRMM fulfills its mission statement by providing hope to the hopeless, disadvantaged, and homeless men, women, and children of our community by ministering to the total person – body, soul and spirit – with services and programs designed to address spiritual, physical, emotional, and social needs to those seeking assistance in hopes of them becoming faithful Christians discipled into a local church, rehabilitated and employed, and living productive and restored lives.
The Mission began as a soup kitchen that provided church services, shelter, food and clothing for the homeless and downtrodden. It changed locations several times and added services to meet the needs of the ever-changing community. Those services include substance abuse treatment, transitional and permanent housing, job preparation and educational courses.
Since the beginning, they have rebuilt hundreds of thousands of lives destroyed by addiction, homelessness and poverty. They are firm believers that you have to treat the whole person to make a permanent change and that’s what we do. You’ve got to help the homeless help themselves.
The main mission at DRMM is to find permanent solutions for the disheartened and disadvantaged so that they can look to the future and not look back at their past.
