On Friday night, Mariners Inn will be hosting its 25th annual River Rhythm gala fundraiser at the Detroit Marriott located at the Renaissance Center in downtown Detroit.
Profits from the fundraiser will go towards Mariners Inn. In fact, 92 cents per dollar will directly benefit the programming and services provided by Mariners Inn. That is a much higher percentage than many charitable organizations that exist today dedicate to their programming and services.
What Is Mariners Inn?
Mariners Inn is a nonprofit homeless shelter, substance abuse treatment center and family social service agency dedicated to helping men who want to be free of addiction achieve a life filled with dignity and purpose. Based in Detroit’s Cass Corridor neighborhood, Mariners Inn provides a wide range of community social services including residential and outpatient treatment, transitional housing, family outreach, alcohol and highway safety, career training, peer mentoring, youth prevention and more.
Last year Mariners Inn provided vital recovery services to more than 600 homeless men, as well as family and youth outreach services focused on family reunification to nearly 170 individuals.
