Shelter of Flint

Mission Opportunity: The Shelter of Flint serves more than 1000 homeless adults and children every day! The average stay for their client is 37 days and they consistently report 90% in positive housing destinations.

At the main shelter, they have an outside play area for the children. In that play area, they have a very nice playhouse that needs some maintenance. We would like to provide that maintenance work so that the children can more fully and safely enjoy the playhouse. We believe that we will need 3 days of “good” weather to complete our work between April 19-30. The first day will be repairing and fixing the house windows and framing. The second day will be re-shingling the roof, priming repair lumber, and painting the tower outside. The third day will be scraping, sanding, and painting the inside and outside of the whole playhouse. If you would like to join our happy work crew, please contact the office at 810-629-7801 or, and indicate which type of tasks you might like to do. We will then let you know exactly which days we plan on working dependent on progress and weather.
