On Thursday, April 2nd, Dr. Phil McGraw made a visit to the S.A.Y. Detroit Family Health clinic in Detroit. Mitch Albom gave him a tour of the facility which was opened last December. McGraw visited with patients and doctors and staff and was so impressed, he vowed a $25,000 gift from his foundation before he left. The clinic is the nation’s only 24 hour/7 day a week facility dedicated to homeless children and their mothers. McGraw’s gift will be used to purchase supplies and equipment to help future patients.

Later that day, Mitch and Dr. Phil hosted a town hall-style meeting at I am My Brother’s Keeper Ministry (1435 Brainard Street). Dr. Phil first heard about Pastor Henry Covington and the Ministry when he read a recent Sports Illustrated article written by Albom called “THE COURAGE OF DETROIT.”
