What We Do

SAY Detroit has been changing lives for the better since 2006, when its founder, Mitch Albom, wrote about how Detroit was providing homeless people three-day shelter parties to get them off the streets while tourists were in town for the Super Bowl. A city that is super just for a weekend isn’t very special come Monday, so we put out a call to raise enough to at least help all year long. The idea of SAY Detroit is in its letters: Super. All. Year.
