Warming Center Offers Haven For Women, Children

December 9, 2013



"It isn't even a shelter. It's an emergency step so people don't freeze."

Rev. Faith Fowler of Cass Community Social Services.

Two social service agencies will operate warming centers for Detroit’s homeless this winter. Cass Community Social Services and Operation “Get Down” have contracted with the City of Detroit to provide beds for homeless people, especially those who don’t use existing shelters. Reverend Faith Fowler is the director of Cass Community Social Services, which sheltered the homeless last winter, too. She spoke with WDET's Pat Batcheller.
