Ruth's House

Way to go Ruth's House. Filling a niche out there that needs to be taken care of. Thank you for opening up your heart and home to help these youth! Who says Detroit doesn't have good things happening.

"Grace A. McClelland, who runs Ruth’s House, said it had a three-month waiting list for its 10-bed shelter, which opened in August. The shelter is named after Ruth Ellis, an African-American lesbian who in the 1930s opened her house in the same neighborhood to gay African-American teenagers. With a staff of seven, it provides school placement, psychological and family counseling and job training. The shelter is financed with private and federal money."
