Detroit church pays homeless to help clean up the city and, we think this idea is brilliant!
The money is coming from donations sent to the Better WAY Detroit initiative, which is hosted out of the Oratory of St. Philip Neri.
Designed to help put a little cash in the pockets of the homeless, it uses the honest-work-for-honest-pay code, and cleans up the city in the process.
The brainchild of Father Marko Djonovic of the Midtown parish of Our Lady of the Rosary, he’s found himself inspired by the effect it’s had on those who have tag along.
A few times a week, Djonovic drives his large white suburban truck to shelters and sites where he knows homeless people sleep.
Each time, different people are given the opportunity to help clean up a part of the city and get $10 an hour for their work.
While the initiative started as a way to clean up Detroit’s public parks, it has evolved into a system of beautifying some of the city’s blighted neighborhoods.
At the end of the shift, the group eats lunch and discuss where they’re at in life.
The church then looks at connecting them with housing and medical services.
The church and the city should not be rivals,” Djonovic said. “We should be working as a team and I think this is an excellent example of how we can work as a team and help the city.”
