Macomb County Rotating Emergency Shelter Team

Our Mission: To provide homeless and displaced individuals the opportunity for successful transition to independence.

Our Purpose: A 90-day rotating emergency homeless shelter program for men, women and children in congregations located throughout Macomb County. Our member congregations provide shelter and food for up to 60 individuals (men, women, children). The guests rotate each week throughout their stay. MCREST operates year round.

At St. Malachy Parish we work in conjunction with MCREST to shelter and feed 30 guests for one full week. This year our week is November 3rd through the 10th. We are always looking for more volunteers to help make this extremely rewarding week possible. We need help with meals, check-in/out, evening security, drivers, laundry, and set-up/tear-down.

If you are interested in volunteering for our MCREST housing week this November, call our coordinator Brad Marquis at (586) 996-6526.
