In the ongoing effort to help struggling men, women and children in Michigan's cities, there is one group who's been reaching out to the needy for generations.

The Capuchin Soup Kitchen has been in continuous operation on Detroit's East side since the Great Depression of 1929, and the Capuchin friars' ministry in Southeast Michigan goes back even further to 1883. That's 130 years of day-in, day-out work.

We wanted to find out whether the face of poverty and need in Southeast Michigan has changed over so many decades.  Brother Jerry Smith joined Cynthia Canty to speak about the Capuchins’ continuing mission to serve Detroit's disadvantaged people.  

Listen to the story above.
