Two houses have been donated to Greater Grace Temple in the last year.
"We use them to provide transitional living for families and women who need it," says Martin Hardy, chief of staff and corporate secretary for Greater Grace Temple in Detroit.
The church also owns eight duplexes, rented by 16 families. The duplexes are in the church's former neighborhood and were purchased in the late 1970s for a total of $235,000, Hardy says.
