Community Resources for assisting the homeless during winter

Help the homeless in our communities come in from the cold during winter to warm up or find a free or low-cost meal. We've assembled the following resources for the Heartside Neighborhood, and also encourage use of Michigan 2-1-1 for access to help with food, utilities, housing, transportation & more. Michigan 2-1-1 is a free, confidential service that connects people across our state with local community-based organizations offering thousands of different programs and services for people seeking answers.
