Our Mission

We strive to support unhoused and disadvantaged families in Detroit by providing food, clothing, water, and hygiene services.

Live Generously.

That’s the heart, culture, and work of Blessed To Give Outreach, and with more than 2,000 meals served, we’re ready for more!


We believe that everyone, no matter their circumstances or background, deserves access to the basics of life: food, shelter, clothing, and water. That's why we work tirelessly to bring these services to our most vulnerable neighbors in Metro Detroit.

Why We're Different

From Detroit, For Detroit

Blessed To Give was birthed from the struggle. Founded in 2019, Dejuan and Carol Puttman decided to be an active part of the positive change in Detroit, particularly by providing aid for our neighbors experiencing homelessness.


We've walked the streets and seen the hurt of our neighborhoods and experienced lack firsthand. 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. is more blessed to give than to receive. Acts 20:35

Our passion is to 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.
