Our Person of the Week is a lifeline for hundreds of men and women
Our Detroit 2020 Person of the Week is a lifeline for hundreds of men and women.
Reverend Faith Fowler is the head of Cass Community Social Services. She’s also the woman behind the sounds of the Cass Ambassadors Choir.
The voices of the Cass Ambassadors filled the studio of Broadcast House.
And this group of formerly homeless men—filled the hearts of everyone attending the Detroit 2020 Awards luncheon.
“It’s really a tremendous thing how they help each other and how they help the general public understand homelessness is a whole new way,” Rev. Faith Fowler told Detroit 2020.
The men have all leaned on Cass Community Social Services. The non-profit prepares and serves a million meals a year.
They offer programs for physical and mental health and provide a bed and a safe night’s rest for homeless women and children.
Cass Green Industries is creating much needed jobs.
“We’re diminished every time we write somebody off. Not just they are at a loss but we as a society are at a loss because they have a contribution to make and in a way they help us all calibrate our lives about what’s important and what really isn’t important and that’s a good message,” Fowler said.
One we heard loud and clear through these voices.
For her leadership and commitment—and yes, Faith in Detroit and its people. Detroit 2020 honors Reverend Faith Fowler as our Person of the Week.
