Local Impact: SAY Detroit

In December 2020, Masco was excited to begin a partnership with SAY Detroit, a multifaceted nonprofit founded by acclaimed author Mitch Albom that improves the lives of Detroit’s neediest citizens through shelter, food, medical care, volunteer efforts and education. As a home improvement company, Masco’s donation will support SAY Detroit’s Working Homes / Working Families program.

Started in 2011, this program uses volunteers to refurbish empty homes in Detroit and donate them to working families in need. Recipient families pay utilities and taxes and must remain employed for two years; upon meeting these requirements, the families are given ownership. To date, more than 40 families have received a fully refurbished home through Working Homes / Working Families.

We look forward to growing this partnership in 2021 and supporting SAY Detroit’s efforts in the fight against homelessness.
