Our Mission 

Sara’s House/Place is a 501(c)(3) Non-Profit Organization that services Metro-Detroit and surrounding areas. We work to break cycles of abuse & homelessness in our communities. Although our services are available to all, we emphasize services for underserved African American/Black women and their children experiencing domestic violence and homelessness. We emphasize services to pregnant survivors and parenting youth. Sara's House is an agency of inspiration and empowerment that provides the necessary resources and skills for thriving independence. We create programs and support that foster growth & development. We focus on teaching real-time strategies that are life-changing and affirming. Our organization is forever evolving and we are committed to developing services to meet the emerging community needs. Take a look through our site to see where you may fit and how you can be apart of such an amazing community giving to a great cause.

Our Originator & Pioneer 

Sara B. Coats (1915-2002), served as a community matriarch who assisted many women and children. Her kindness and compassion allowed her to nurture people and she opened her home to those in need. Sara helped people as they went through life's obstacles and helped them shift from situations that were less than desirable into more empowering situations.  Sara always stood firm on prayer, faith, and determination. She showed people that their dreams of a better life could be manifested. Our logo represents opportunity and ambition as you see the transition from a caterpillar in a cocoon to a beautiful butterfly. This symbol is used to show how lives can be transformed into greatness. We at Sara's House/Place strive to always keep her vision alive.
