Community Housing Network’s mission to end homelessness and provide affordable housing options never ends. The group’s passionate advocates are devoted to providing homes for people in need and access to resources to create sustainable communities. They provide affordable housing and resources to people who are homeless or at risk of homelessness, people with disabilities, love income, those facing foreclosure and other vulnerable members of the southeast Michigan community.

Children With Hair Loss

 

 

 

 

Children With Hair Loss was created as a resource for ALL CHILDREN who have medically-related hair loss. It is our mission to empower these children to become whole again by making hair replacement available to those who may be financially challenged and might otherwise not have a means of obtaining the hair they want and need.

Our goal is to assist as many of these children as possible in changing their lives by improving their outlook and empowering them with a degree of self-confidence that will allow them to face the world with renewed self-esteem.

Volunteers are needed to help provide administrative office support and with special fundraising events.

Detroit Firemen’s Benevolent Fund

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Detroit Firemen’s Benevolent Fund is a 503c(3) non-profit organization. The Fund has served firefighters and our community for over 149 years. Our membership is made up of active duty and retired Detroit Firefighters. We were originally organized in 1866 to aid injured Detroit firefighters, and widows and children of deceased firemen. Throughout the years we have expanded our scope to include our community and our region. Our sponsored groups rely on the Fund for assistance in a variety of areas. From financial help to copying flyers and distributing information about the groups’ events, the Firemen’s Fund is there to help them do what they do best.

Need volunteers for working at our fundraising events – Field Day, Chili Cook Off & other events that come up during the year.

Community Sharing

 

 

 

 

 

We are a non-profit, 501(c)(3) organization, overseen by a Board of (Volunteer) Directors and operated by nearly 200 volunteers. Additional community members generously donate their professional services to supply accounting, legal, and marketing related activities. Because we operate primarily through volunteers, ninety cents of every donated dollar can be spent to assist the over 720 men, women and children we service each month.*

Our community’s sharing of their time, energy and finances allows us to provide a broad range of services to financially distressed families. There isn’t a month that goes by that someone in the Highland or Milford area doesn’t offer some form of charitable endeavor… a coat & boot drive, pajamas for kids, a canned food drive and more.

Community Sharing is surrounded and held by a loving community.

Volunteer Opportunities include pantry volunteers, tutors, porters, shelf stockers, food pick-up, etc.

 

Drowsy Driving the Same as Drunk Driving?

Not getting enough sleep? Well maybe it’s about time you should because a recent study from AAA says that getting less than seven hours of sleep a day is just as risky as drunk driving! Read the article below by Sleep Savvy Magazine all about AAA’s study.

Drowsy Driving as Risky as Drunk Driving

A study from AAA finds sleeping less than seven hours a day doubles the dangers of crashing.

Drivers who miss between one to two hours of the recommended seven hours of sleep in a 24-hour period and are drowsing driving nearly double their risk of a crash, according to research from the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says 35% of U.S. drivers sleep less than the recommended seven hours daily. And with drowsy driving involved in more than one in five fatal crashes on U.S. roadways each year, AAA warns drivers getting less than seven hours of sleep may have deadly consequences.

“You cannot miss sleep and still expect to be able to safely function behind the wheel,” says David Yang, executive director for the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety. “Our new research shows that a driver who has slept for less than five hours has a crash risk comparable with someone driving drunk.”

The AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety’s report, “Acute Sleep Deprivation and Risk of Motor Vehicle Crash Involvement,” released in December 2016, reveals that drivers missing two to three hours of sleep in a 24-hour period more than quadrupled their risk of a crash, compared with drivers getting the recommended seven hours of sleep. This is the same crash risk the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration associates with driving over the legal limit for alcohol.
