We provide homeless persons dignity in work for pay to help beautify the City of Detroit.
“Work is fundamental to the dignity of the person” – Pope Francis
Better WAY Detroit™ engages, pays, feeds, and counsels homeless persons, and connects them to services for housing, medical, and/or mental health.
They help beautify our beloved city in return. They clear Detroit parks and neighborhoods of trash and overgrowth to make them safer, and they provide assistance for projects of special importance to local communities.
Better WAY Detroit is a new initiative of the priests of the Detroit Oratory of St. Philip Neri, serving the homeless from Our Lady of the Rosary Church in Midtown Detroit.
The priests of the Detroit Oratory began the project by their own financial means and with the donations of others. These donations are essential to continuing the program, as requests for assistance continue to grow.
Please take a few minutes to view the video below; it helped us launch the program and tells our story. Further down the page, the video featuring Mitch Album expounds our narrative, pointing to our more recent neighborhood work.
