The following organizations were selected as recipients of the CFCU Outreach & Impact Foundation grants in spring 2024:

In addition to the financial contribution, CFCU volunteers will be partnering with Habitat for Humanity Detroit and Macomb County Habitat for Humanity to assist with two build projects in metro Detroit in summer 2024.

These grants reflect CFCU’s ongoing dedication to making a positive difference in the lives of those within the community. By supporting organizations that share its values of stable housing, improving quality of life, empowering the next generation and financial wellness, CFCU continues to fulfill its mission of enriching lives and building brighter futures for all.

“Affordable and stable housing is a core tenant of our Foundation’s mission, and we were able to partner with several organizations this year to help make this a reality for more metro Detroit residents,” said Christine Quitter, director of business development and community outreach at CFCU. “At CFCU, we believe in the power of collaboration and are committed to working together with local organizations to address critical needs and create positive change.”

MCREST (Macomb County Rotating Emergency Shelter Team) provides meals, lodging, life skills training and emergency shelter year-round to individuals and families experiencing homelessness in Macomb County. With a focus on both the immediate need and long-term success, MCREST provides the opportunity for displaced individuals to successfully transition to independence.

“This generous grant from Christian Financial Credit Union will significantly bolster our efforts to provide vital support to individuals experiencing homelessness in Macomb County,” said April Fidler, executive director of MCREST. “With this funding, we can continue to offer shelter, meals and essential services, helping those in need find stability and hope.”

Building community for nearly 30 years, Macomb County Habitat for Humanity creates, preserves, and promotes affordable home ownership in Macomb County by constructing affordable homes and repairing homes for income-qualified homeowners and seniors.

Habitat for Humanity Detroit’s vision is to create a world where everyone has a safe and secure place to live. Through initiatives like the Habitat Homeownership program and the Critical Home Repair Initiative, they provide families and neighbors in need with the safe and affordable housing they deserve.
