It has been a few months now since we began this ministry and we having been patiently searching for the right home in the Highland Park neighborhood. My friends from Hope House Detroit came down in early spring and we located a couple of homes that fit the needed size and location but getting in touch with the owners/seller has been met with struggle. We eventually moved on since we were not getting returned calls.
Many of the homes are small and since we need room for interns to live and serve not finding larger homes for sale has been a bit disappointing. The area has many homes that look suitable but have been abandoned, are boarded up, and are not for sale at this point. I am told this is likely due to who is on the title of the home (sometimes it is several relatives)
