The Inter-Faith Rotating Shelter, run by Cass Community Social Services (CCSS), was started in 1988 because of a need for additional food and shelter for homeless persons during the winter months. From October to May, churches of all sizes and denominations throughout the Detroit metropolitan area select a week to host this shelter. Our church has been a faithful participant since 1991.
During Hospitality Week our church is transformed into a welcoming shelter! Sunday School rooms become sleeping rooms, the Chapel becomes a room for watching movies, reading, relaxing, and quiet socialization. And our Fellowship Hall serves as dining space for breakfast and dinner, and entertainment and recreation in the evening.
Guests include men, women, and young children. They arrive each day at 6:00pm, have dinner, participate in evening activities and snack, and go to sleep. They are served breakfast in the morning and then leave for Cass programs during the day.
