Life Remodeled


Life Remodeled is a registered 501c3 Nonprofit Corporation with the Mission: “Remodeling Lives… One Family at a Time!” We invite you to join us as we remodel the lives of 7 families in Metro Detroit this year. Each selected-family will receive the following, free of charge:

  • A Brand-New Home (Built in only 6 days)
  • Financial Training
  • Psychological Counseling
  • Spiritual Guidance

Not only will 7 families experience dramatic transformation, but we will also beautify the surrounding neighborhoods in each of the 7 cities. While Life Remodeled is not a religious organization, Chris Lambert (LR President) shares, “My greatest passion is to connect hundreds of thousands of Christians and non-Christians together in environments that are saturated with radically effective Gospel-communicating potential. Pro-choice or Pro-life… Homosexual or Heterosexual… Muslim or Atheist… many people agree that our mission of remodeling lives is exciting. For the Christ-followers who partner with us, Life Remodeled is in one sense “church beyond the four walls of a Sunday service.” Throughout the week, the Gospel is communicated with dynamic power and unique beauty. 

Regardless your worldview and lifestyle choices, we hope YOU will join us on this incredible adventure! “Get Involved” by registering on our website:


Handyman Ministries


Handyman Ministries (HM) is a faith-based 501(c)(3) non-profit community revitalization organization dedicated to helping low-income individuals and families by providing residential homeowners with free home maintenance and repair services, energy audits, and efficiency upgrades as well as necessary home modifications for the physically disabled. Our mission is to ensure that every home is safe, healthy, energy efficient and habitable. Jesus said, “Love your neighbor as yourself,” and HM does just that by reaching out to the community by putting the Word of God into action by helping those in need. We believe that all people deserve to live in a suitable living environment and we strive to provide repair, modification and upgrade services to all whom qualify in order to create an environment where people can grow and thrive. HM provides its services to income-eligible clients who reside in our service district of Wayne, Oakland, or Macomb Counties, Michigan.

HANDYMAN MINISTRIES has collaborated with HOUSE of HELP and CITY MISSION to bring you:

The project will be a renovation of homes and a restoration of faith in God and humanity. We will also be hosting community barbecues for the neighborhoods focused on fellowship with one another in love as we share our testimony of the saving grace of our Lord.

Come be the hands and feet of Jesus as He revives the city through the renewing of all His people. No construction skills are required, just the willingness for serving the Lord by serving those in need.
