In one of the harshest winters on record, C.S. Mott Foundation grantees in Flint, Michigan, are helping to meet the most basic needs – food, shelter and clothing – of the city’s poor and homeless residents.

In one of the harshest winters on record, C.S. Mott Foundation grantees are helping to meet the basic needs of homeless and low-income residents in Flint, Michigan.

One of those agencies is Catholic Charities of Shiawassee and Genesee Counties, which operates the Holy Angels Warming Center near downtown.

As many as 148 people visit the warming center each day for a hot meal and to escape the bitter cold.

The agency’s three year-round soup kitchens in Flint provided more than 170,400 meals in 2013.

“This winter has been brutal for those we serve,” says the agency’s president and CEO, Vicki Schultz (above). “I am determined that no one is going to freeze or go hungry while we’re here and can do something about it.”

Staff at Carriage Town Ministries, also a Mott grantee, notes the cold and snow have driven inside many homeless people who might otherwise stay outdoors.

The agency’s shelter facilities and its food program, which serves about 142,000 meals a year, are helping to meet pressing community needs this winter.

“The most important thing we do up front is we provide a clean, secure, safe place that will accept you.” – Dallas Gatlin, executive director Carriage Town Ministries
