Better Way Detroit

We provide dignity to homeless persons by offering the opportunity to work for pay to help beautify the City of Detroit.

Better WAY Detroitâ„¢ [BWD] engages, pays, feeds, and counsels homeless persons, and connects them to services for housing, medical and/or mental health care and stable employment opportunities.

In return, BWD participants help beautify our beloved city by clearing Detroit parks and neighborhoods of trash and plant/tree overgrowth to help make them safer. Through their efforts, BWD participants inspire community spirit, pride of ownership and confidence in the dignity of work.
