Albom Launches A Hole in the Roof Foundation

Sep 26, 2009 | News | 0 comments

WELCOME TO “A HOLE IN THE ROOF” FOUNDATION!

 The mission of A Hole in the Roof Foundation is to help faith groups of every denomination who care for the homeless to repair the spaces in which they carry out their work and offer their services.  The seed that gave root to the Foundation – and also inspired its name – is the I Am My Brother’s Keeper church in Detroit, MI.  Here, despite a gaping hole in the roof, and no matter how harsh the weather, the pastor tends to his community to provide spiritual nourishment and a sanctuary for the homeless.

A Hole in the Roof Foundation raises and distributes funds to help pay for the materials and labor that are needed to help faith groups make such repairs to their most essential infrastructure:  replacing broken windows; shoring up load-bearing walls or loose foundations; repairing leaks and other plumbing problems; fixing or replacing heating sources. 

Our first project is the I Am My Brother’s Keeper roof in the crumbling but vibrant Detroit church. After that, we will distribute any and all funds based on applications, need and the most good they can do.
