This month we are collecting monetary donations for Cass Community Social Services Tiny Homes of Detroit. Donations can be given to our Guest Experience Coordinators at time of check-in or check-out.

Detroit is grappling with both devastating poverty and a hot real estate market. One third of the city’s households earn less than $15,000 per year. While some areas of the city are experiencing resurgence, remarkable inequity remains.

Large swaths of the city still bear the scars of decades of disinvestment and abandonment. But Rev. Faith Fowler of the nonprofit Cass Community Social Services sees a way to remedy both: Develop tiny houses, and create a rent-to-own financing mechanism to help impoverished Detroiters become owners of those homes. People earning just $10,000 a year can buy property through her program.
