The mission of A Hole in the Roof Foundation is to help faith and relief groups of every denomination who care for the homeless and/or victims of disasters. A Hole in the Roof aims to help build or provide funds to repair the spaces in which they offer services. The roots of the Foundation – which also inspired its name – is the I Am My Brother’s Keeper church in Detroit, MI. Here, despite a gaping hole in the roof through which rain and snow fell on the congregation, the pastor tended to his community, providing spiritual nourishment and a sanctuary for the needy.
A Hole in the Roof Foundation furthers that spirit by raising and distributing funds to help pay for repairs and rebuilding infrastructure. The repairs of the crumbling but vibrant I Am My Brother’s Keeper church were completed in December 2009 with the generous donations of readers across the globe who first read about the story in Mitch Albom’s Have a Little Faith.
We will distribute any and all funds based on applications, need and the most good they can do.
