Humble Design: helping those emerging from homelessness

Humble Design

Humble Design is a nonprofit that serves families and veterans emerging from homelessness by transforming an empty house or apartment into a home—a very simple idea that can change a family's  future. We turn dwellings into dignified and welcoming homes. We are not just furnishing homes, we are furnishing hope.

Humble Design serves individuals, families and veterans emerging from homelessness by transforming their empty house into a warm, welcoming and uplifting home with donated furniture and household goods.

5000 Ways to Know You're From Detroit!

Article below, in part, from: https://michronicleonline.com/2018/07/31/windsor-couples-book-tells-stories-of-detroit-in-5000-ways/

Did you know that Detroit is the only place in the United States where Canada is directly south?

The city in Canada just south of the Motor City is Windsor. Its nickname is South Detroit and that is where husband and wife publishing-duo, Chris Edwards and Elaine Weeks, co-authors of “5,000 Ways You Know You’re from Detroit”, are from. Dedicated to the baby boomer generation, the book was published in October 2017 and documents the City of Detroit with unique facts, stories, and trivia from 1939-1980.

The couple met at the now-defunct Windsor-Detroit International Freedom Festival in 1980 and have been married for 32 years. Edwards’ father was great friends with Bert Weeks, Elaine’s father, who was the mayor of Windsor, and an ally of Detroit Mayor Coleman A. Young at the time. Their connection to Detroit and its history is undeniable and strong, which inspired them to write the book.

“We did a book on Windsor baby boomers, “500 Ways You Know You’re from Windsor” and people loved it,” said Edwards. “When we did that book, we thought we should do one on Detroit. It took us a few years to get the momentum for the book, but we got it done.
