Detroit Little Libraries

DESCRIPTION

Detroit Little Libraries - a grassroots group partnering with the national Little Free Library - is working to promote reading, community and neighborhood pride in the city by installing little free libraries.

For the uninitiated, a little free library is a container about the size of a doll house that is placed outside someone's house, or in a public space such as a park. It is filled with books that anyone can take, read and keep. Patrons are encouraged to return a book for someone else in the community . Stewards in the neighborhoods take care of the little library, and often evolve into ambassadors for community involvement.

The Empowerment Plan

DESCRIPTION

We're a Detroit-based non-profit organization dedicated to serving the homeless community. We hire homeless women from local shelters to become full time seamstresses. These women manufacture a coat that transforms into a sleeping bag, which is then given out to homeless individuals living on the streets at no cost to them.

We believe in giving second chances to those who want it, and providing warmth to those who need it.
