Friendship House is a faith-based non-profit organization located in Hamtramck that serves as a compassionate ministry, strengthening families through community connections and offering help with basic human needs to residents, such as food and clothing, and providing assistance in gaining the tools necessary to achieve self-sufficiency.

The only food pantry in Hamtramck, Detroit Friendship House provides approximately 2,200 meals per month to Hamtramck residents.

Friendship House tries to take some of the burden off our client’s shoulders by providing a Santa Toy Shop every year. Right before Christmas, we setup our facility’s lobby with toys donated to us by generous benefactors to look like a Christmas Toy Shop.

We also operate a Clothes Closet on site and give hundreds of articles of clothing away every year – including men’s, women’s, children’s, and baby clothes, hats, gloves, scarves, shoes, and boots. Also, several household items, toiletries, and accessories.
