Projects and Programs 1987-2011 [series] (3.5 linear feet)

The Projects and Programs series contains materials related to the various undertakings of the Detroit Rescue Mission Ministries, primarily during the 1990s and 2000s. In contrast to the administrative records, the Projects and Programs series covers more of the day to day operations and those pertaining to specific buildings and projects. Programs run by the organization such as Women’s Day, Youth Services, among others document the planning and promotion that built up to events themselves. Meetings held by employees of buildings and programs discuss challenges faced by the groups. Records of buildings report on the users and staff, but also focus on the services offered by the DRMM.

One area of interest within the series is the Employee Work Journals. These are handwritten notes from employees working in various Detroit Rescue Mission Ministries run shelters, with updates on job duties. Employees wrote down the types of work they had done each day and also offered updates on the people that were utilizing the programs and housing options.

Publicity 1910-2016 [series] (9 linear feet, 1 oversize folder, 12.15 GB)

The Publicity series contains material that was used to promote the organizations projects and programs to the community. News articles within the series offer stories on the organization's projects and goals, which were published by various newspapers and online. There are also certificates that were presented to the Detroit Rescue Mission Ministries to celebrate some of their accomplishments. These certificates came from the city of Detroit, the state of Michigan, and political figures such as Michigan Governor Jennifer Granholm. A large portion of printed materials are arranged by the year (or in some cases by decade) and contain general flyers, brochures, newsletters, and other printed material.

Also included are video and audiocassettes with recordings of news stories promoting the projects of the organization, interviews with employees, and promotional videos used in programs. The audio recordings are largely topical, but also contain some examples radio advertising.

Photographs, slides, and negatives of the organization comprise the largest portion of the series. While some of the photographs are arranged by subject, most are unidentified. The latter depict various projects, programs, and locations. These images document the people who used the services of the Detroit Rescue Mission Ministries, as well as the organization's buildings and housing facilities.
