Michigan Winters are Deadly.
For most of us, the winter weather can bring nuisance and inconvenience. But for the homeless community, the frigid temperatures can be lethal. According to national advocacy agencies, 700 homeless individuals die of hypothermia annually.
And Macomb County is no exception.
This winter, Motor City Mitten Mission, with support from Trinity Lutheran Church, is launching the Kathy Goodrich Winter Shelter to bring warmth to our most vulnerable neighbors. This organization is founded to honor the work of Kathy Goodrich, a Macomb County homeless advocate who ran the Macomb County Warming Center each winter for over 20 years. Since her passing, the need for the vital services she provided has grown exponentially.

An equally impactful way to help is to furnish the shelter with the necessary supplies to assist our guests. Cleaning supplies, toiletries, coffee, and other operational tools are needed as much as direct funding. You can purchase these items for the homeless of Macomb on our Amazon Gift Registry. Just add to your cart and pay as you normally would on Amazon.
