Eye On Detroit - Wave ProjectEstablished in 2018, WAVE Project (Welcoming All Valuing Everyone) is a grassroots nonprofit organization based in Macomb County. The founding 6 members of WAVE project were brought together by the common threads of faith, family, and a desire to make an impact by serving and loving the community. WAVE Project exists to build relationships. From connecting with existing organizations to mobilize and equip, to directly meeting needs within the community, WAVE Project is relational at heart. The project started with a monthly Outreach BBQ event in Mount Clemens where volunteers and people experiencing homelessness alike sit down together over a meal and share their stories. Through hearing people’s stories, it became evident that access to hygiene services is a major barrier for those in the community who are experiencing homelessness.

Eye On Detroit - Fleece and Thank YouFleece & Thank You was inspired by a friend Sophie, 4 years old and battling neuroblastoma. At a time in her life when she should be playing with dolls and meeting new friends, Sophie was taking trips to the hospital to battle one of the toughest forms of childhood cancer- this meant many rounds of difficult chemotherapy treatments involving multiple overnight stays in the hospital. Sophie had her childhood stolen from her, and it is our goal to provide hope and comfort to all children like Sophie facing the disconnection of hospital treatments. Our founder, Nicholas Kristock, saw this disconnection and needed to do something about it, and that is where Fleece & Thank You was born.
