We moved into storefront 14905 Grand River only to learn that previous squatter had taken furnace, hot water heater, electric service box, overhead lighting, toilet, sink and water meter.  Thank you to Ferndale electrician Claudia Comos and Sean at Moore Plumbing in Detroit for your generous support.  Anybody got a working furnace they would like to donate?


We are 501-C3 tax exempt.  Appreciate donations of any working of the above and also money donations welcomed.  Tradespeople and non tradespeople welcomed to cleanup, drywall repair, paint, assist with plumbing, electrical and heating needs.  Please use contact page to let us know how you would like to help.
