MCREST:  Macomb County Rotating Emergency Shelter Team

St. Jane Frances de Chantal offers our parish for a week as a place that will provide temporary shelter for drug and alcohol free homeless men, women, and children in Macomb County.  The goal is to provide an opportunity for our guests to concentrate their efforts on finding/maintaining employment, securing housing, and saving funds towards these goals.  We provide three meals per day, a warm bed, shower facilities, laundry services and transportation.  This activity is facilitated by 12 parish subcommittees staffed by over 300 parish volunteers.  There is always a need, and room for new volunteers.  The nature of the tasks and a call for volunteers will be announced in the parish bulletin.
