Our Parish Family Welcomes You!

MCREST

MCREST

The Macomb County Rotating Emergency Shelter Team (MCREST) shelters men, women, children and families for up to 90 days in congregations across Macomb County.  The congregations provide meals, shower facilities, transportation and, when able, laundry services for our guests.  MCREST assures not only safe shelter, meals and friendship but many other services that help transition families and individuals back into the community.  During our guest’s stay in the Shelter Program, MCREST Case Managers work with each individual and family to develop and implement a personalized housing plan that concentrates on overcoming barriers to self-reliance such as lack of income, poor money management, mental health issues, substance abuse, and a broken personal support system.  As guests secure income, MCREST provides rental assistance to families through our Journey Home program and individuals through our Open Door program to transition back into affordable housing.  It is our hope that before the end of their stay we can reconnect them with their own affordable place to call home and the resources and supports through case management to remain there.  Please consider supporting our programs.
