About us

Meeting The Need

We are helping families and individuals with basic needs while fighting poverty and promoting self-reliance. By providing the basics, we are helping them get back on their feet while reducing the stress that may be caused by not being able to make ends meet. 

Helping families and individuals with basic needs helps strengthen our community. Together we can make a difference.


We simply exist to serve and give back to our most vulnerable neighbors. To relieve stress by meeting basic needs like food, clothing, water, and hygiene services. 

Our Approach

We are all human and deserve to be treated as such. It's really that simple. Human connection can change the world.

Setting the Standard

We believe that everyone deserves the best and that is what we offer through first-class service while providing new clothing, healthier food options, and uplifting experiences.

We envision a community that works together to improve and enrich the lives of those in need.


From Detroit, For Detroit.

Blessed To Give was birthed from struggle. Founded in 2020, Dejuan and Carol Puttman decided to be an active part of the positive change in Detroit, particularly providing aid for our neighbors experiencing homelessness. We've walked the streets and seen the hurt  of our neighborhoods and experiencing lack first hand. That upbringing has humbled us, birthing a passion to speak life and spread love in our city. We are committed to being a part of the positive change in Detroit.

Our passion is t
o be God's hands of hope in our local community; serving in love and radically transforming lives through compassion and giving. We are so grateful for the opportunity that we have to partner with God in the vision He has for Detroit.

In every community, there are individuals who have untapped potential to make their community a better place. We inspire others to be more aware of society's problems and be proactive in creating solutions. Being a part of the restoration in someone else's life, cultivates love, forms deep transformation, and grows strong roots in our hearts for others. is more blessed to give than to received. Acts 20:35
