Hearts for Homes is a non-profit charitable organization that helps homeless children and their families gain access to permanent housing in Macomb County, and creating permanent affordable housing for low- and very low-income families.
The COVID-19 pandemic has disproportionately impacted low and very low-income families with lost or reduced wages. This led to many families becoming delinquent in rent payments, putting them at risk of homelessness.
In 2020, Hearts for Homes was selected as the Banksgiving Grand Gift Winner of $10,000 from First State Bank. The organization utilized grant funds to provide limited rent payment assistance to keep families in their homes, as well as help Hearts for Homes provide rent/security deposit assistance to help other homeless families get into their homes.
