At Mel Trotter Ministries, we dare for more and we dream for more for our neighbors who are experiencing homelessness.
The campaign’s main focus is to renovate two existing MTM buildings at 225 Commerce Avenue SW and create more affordable housing and job training opportunities.
Immeasurably More is a $13 million capital campaign for Mel Trotter Ministries that will:
Update shelter spaces that have not received significant improvements in decades.
Equip for work through paid job training and social enterprise opportunities.
Create more affordable housing for guests on their journey out of homelessness.

With your help, we can achieve immeasurably more together.
The face of homelessness today looks drastically different from when Mel Trotter Ministries was founded in Grand Rapids nearly 120 years ago. Families, unaccompanied youth, and single women are now the fastest-growing segments of homelessness in our community.
Relationships are crucial to helping people find and stay in stable housing. We are passionate about coming alongside each person, hearing their story, loving them with the compassion of Jesus Christ and connecting them with resources. Whether it’s at MTM, or another like-minded organization, working together to address homelessness is the only way to succeed.
