Who We Are
Blessed To Give, a 501(c)(3) organization, was started in June 2020 by Dejuan and Carol Puttman to help address the homeless problem in the Metro Detroit. Our vision is to lift up individuals in crisis, and help end homelessness. We provide and distribute food, clothing, hygiene care kits and helpful resources to the homeless and other people in need.
Both born and raised in Detroit, Juan and Carol have walked the streets, seen the hurt and struggle of the communities and knows what it's like to be without. That upbringing has humbled them and birthed a passion to speak life and spread love in the city. They are committed to being apart of the positive change in Detroit.
"We believe in being the salt and light of the earth and reflecting God's nature. God gave His Son, Jesus, so we can have everlasting life. In return, we generously give love, forgiveness and hope. We Boldly declare that We Are Blessed To Give!"
Nobody can help everybody,
but everybody can help somebody.
Our mission is to serve our neighbors experiencing homelessness, in a dignified way. To restore hope, purpose and dignity and promote well-being to people experiencing homelessness while providing excellent care and offering hope that the individual may one day reach self-sufficiency and live independently.
Our mission is very clear – we feed the weary and meet the most in-need with love, compassion, and care. Blessed To Give serves as a reminder to let people experiencing homelessness know that they are not forgotten, providing the essentials needed for daily living.
Our vision is to create a society where everyone is seen and valued; a community of people united by a desire to serve. Our goal is to engage the community in a collaborative effort to move people experiencing homeless out of that lifestyle permanently.
We plan to partner with like-minded service providers, schools and universities, influencers, local businesses, and corporations to deliver extraordinary care to our unhoused neighbors.
