A free clinic, we provide examinations, maintenance and preventive healthcare for underinsured women. Open weekdays, it utilizes a staff of physicians and nurse practitioners, many of whom volunteer their time, in the areas of: gynecology, internal medicine, podiatry, physical therapy, health coaching, and nutrition.
Originally launched in December of 2008 by SAY Detroit and the Detroit Rescue Mission Ministries as the nation’s first free medical clinic devoted to homeless children and their mothers, the clinic has expanded its reach to female patients with limited income, in transitional housing and employment situations, and who are homeless. Accepting patients from all over the Detroit area, the clinic averages more than 4,000 patient visits annually.
Corporation sponsorship in fundraising, the donation of equipment and supplies, or coordinating volunteer events for facility and personnel needs is welcome. Please contact SAY Detroit if your organization is interested in partnering with the clinic.

The Avalon Village is a sustainable eco-village that is currently being built to transform one of the city’s most blighted blocks into a safe, functional, and beautiful space for the entire community. The inspiration behind this transformative project is 2 year-old Jakobi RA, who was killed by a hit-and-run driver in 2007.
Our first installation, Jakobi RA Park, serves as a gathering place for celebrations, community service projects, activities and events throughout the year. Adjacent to Jakobi RA park is The Homework House, a renovated brick house where children will receive healthy meals and help with their homework. The house will also feature a computer lab and STEM lab, a kitchen, laundry and shower facilities, a recording studio, and comfortable places to study and learn. Outside, there will be tennis, volleyball and basketball courts and seating.
D2N supports these collaborative efforts, which has become an integrated learning opportunity for Wayne State University Master of Public Health students. In late 2019 the DMC Foundation generously awarded D2N a grant that serves to further strengthen these ties in Highland Park, a portion of which will fund a clinic health coach.
