galvanizing Detroit volunteers a regular basis. A nonprofit
organization under Albom’s S.A.Y Detroit charity, A Time to Help

100 Houses Campaign
A Time to Help volunteers were the first volunteers to
help with the 100 Houses campaign, which is an effort championed
by Mitch Albom and the Detroit Rescue Mission Ministries and
aims to secure and beautify neighborhoods in the City of
Detroit. Efforts began in 2012 and to date three project events
have been held. The campaign has boarded more than 300 vacant
and abandoned houses. Additionally, in August 2013 the project
teamed with The Blight Authority to help beautify more than 500
vacant lots of land in the Brightmoor neighborhood in Detroit.
Community revitalization efforts will continue in the City of
Detroit as opportunities arise. For more information contact
project coordinator, Rachael Williams at
