Social Service & Outreach

St. Anne’s Mead, where the Bishop serves on the board, is a non-profit senior citizen facility created by local churches and the diocese. It provides assisted living, nursing care and memory care for its residents. Mariners Inn, originally called the Detroit Protestant Episcopal City Mission Society, has provided transitional housing for Detroit’s homeless men since its founding in 1925 by the diocese. It has also become a national model for its highly successful licensed residential and outpatient treatment efforts. The Bishop sits on its board.

The diocese works with several other dioceses across the United States to support The Dominican Development Group (DDG), a non-profit organization within The Episcopal Church that assists the Episcopal Diocese of the Dominican Republic.

In addition, many congregations in the diocese have social service ministries, including food pantries, clothes closets, community gardens, and meal programs, to meet neighbors’ basic needs.
