the project

Founded in 2008, Brightmoor Connection was originally a consortium of nine churches and two organizations.  It has been Fisher Foundation funded for the past 10 years in addition to contributions and support from Gleaners of Southeast Michigan and United Way. 

Brightmoor Connection acquired non-profit 501C(3) status in 2015 and has over 35 invaluable and dedicated volunteers – the backbone of our program. Today, it remains a collaborative effort with Pure Word MBC, City Covenant Church, St. Christine’s, Cathedral of Faith, Rosedale Park Baptist, Mt. Vernon MBC, Grace New Covenant, and We the People in service to Detroit’s Brightmoor Community.

Brightmoor Connection uses a Client-Choice Model allowing individuals and families to shop by appointment. The Client-Choice model fosters a shopper-friendly atmosphere. Our clients are afforded the dignity of shopping through a grocery aisle without the stigma of a traditional food pantry experience. People receive an estimated 50-70 pounds of food per monthly visit. Our water station assists individuals and families experiencing water insecurity. We also provide services to assist with water reconnections to their homes. In 2018 the pantry expanded its clothing closet to provide a larger variety of clothes for adults and children.
