 Local real estate firm donates school supplies for every home sale

Project Promise was launched in 2019 to help underprivileged students reach their potential.

Hundreds of underprivileged students throughout metro-Detroit are equipped with core school supplies thanks to Social House Group, a local real estate brokerage that is donating schools supplies to 10 students for every home its Realtors sell.

Called Project Promise, the giving-back-to-the-community effort is a creatively-funded 501(c)3 non-profit organization launched in 2019 by Social House Group founder Erik Wright.

Wright is the son of a special-needs educator, who has had a firsthand glimpse into the under-resourced world of education for close to two decades.

“The idea of Project Promise took form in 2019 when I decided to create a post on Facebook offering to provide school supplies to 10 families in need,” Wright reflected, explaining how Project Promise was developed. “Ten families quickly turned into over 100 local students within a few days.

Obligation to help

“I felt an obligation to do more once I realized the magnitude of the glaring need for additional support for our local educators and students.”

Project Promise is committed to providing essential school supplies to underprivileged children, teachers and families in local communities to create a foundational launching pad for future educational success.

Funds are raised for Project Promise through a variety of platforms.

In addition to Social House Group supporting 10 students for each home its Realtors sell, people can visit the Project Promise website and click on the “Take Action Now” link to give directly to the non-profit’s mission.

A modest donation of $10 can help Project Promise provide supplies to one student.

Strong commitment

One hundred percent of donations go directly to purchasing school supplies for students who are in dire need of even the basic tools.

Wright also encourages teachers and school administrators to fill out an application on the website if their students are in need of supplies.

“Our goal for 2024 is to raise $100,000, which would help 10,000 students,” Wright said.
