On Your Feet Detroit
On Your Feet Detroit is an action-based organization that helps people experiencing homelessness in the Detroit area led by Anthony and Lauren Guastella.
There are thousands of people experiencing homelessness in Detroit. Beyond their obvious needs, homelessness leads to feelings of loneliness and isolation. During the winter months, they face even greater hardships trying to survive the brutal cold weather.
Beginning in 2015, On Your Feet Detroit began handing out essential items to keep people warm during the harsh winter months. Although donations and supplies are needed to support those experiencing homelessness, the main objective is to make the people we serve feel known, loved, and cared for.
Together with donors and volunteers, On Your Feet Detroit strives to eradicate misconceptions about those experiencing homelessness in order to break down barriers and encourage our community to serve those in need alongside us. Get on your feet, Detroit - and join in the mission!
