Donating New or Used Items

We greatly appreciate having so many donors who donate new or used items to Progress Transitional Housing. We have a small donation center where we are able to organize some clothing items and other small household items for immediate use by the residents or as graduation gifts when residents graduate.

Because of this limited space, we ask that donors call before donating items to see if we have space or immediate use for the items. You may call us at (313) 350-2863.

  • Items we can always use are:
  • paper goods (including toilet paper, paper towels, napkins, etc.)
  • toiletries (including bath soap, shampoo, etc.)
  • laundry soap
  • 17 gallon trash bags

Donating Gift Cards

It may be initially interesting to you as to why we welcome Gift Cards of any type of any amount. Gift cards provide a great deal of flexibility for use within the program. For example, we may have a couple who have not been out on a date in quite some time and with a variety of gift cards to choose from - they can use the gift card to go out on a date while we provide child care through volunteers here at the facility. Gift cards can also be used to assist with a resident in purchasing tools or clothing necessary for work - encouraging and equiping them for their jobs. The donation of gift cards from a variety of stores and restuarants in various amounts allow for dreams to be realized and goals to be reached. Please consider purchasing gift cards for a resident.

They can be mailed to:
Progress Transition House
13500 E. McNichols Road
Detroit, MI 48205-3426

or dropped off at: 16580 San Juan Drive, Detroit, MI 48221. Click here for directions

Gift cards are tax-deductible for the full amount placed on the card.

Upon receipt of your tax-deductible in-kind donation and upon acquiring the necessary contact information, you will receive a receipt letter in the mail within 5-10 business days.
