Dégagé is a ministry in downtown Grand Rapids that reaches out to the poor and homeless. They walk alongside those who are in transition or hardship, hoping to show them that they are not alone. Several times a year, Mayfair volunteers during bingo nights at Dégagé in order to get to know the community, and to support their ministry. Additionally, Mayfair has recently begun offering “Voucher Cards” to the people in the congregation. These cards are worth $2 and can be redeemed at Dégagé for needs such as food or a shower. We want to empower those who feel powerless, and offer support in a way that is self-sustaining. We want to highlight available resources in Grand Rapids that offer support in ways people need.
