One thought on “Rod Reinhart”

  1. Rodney was also instrumental in negotiating the support of the Episcopal and Catholic diocese for the cr eation of Wellness House Michigan. Rodney and I visited both and obtained cash grants from both. Together with a grant from the city of Detroit, we obtained sufficient funds to purchase the property that became Wellness House which took in homeless men diagnosed with AIDS. We also recruited a board of professionals from healthcare, social workers, and religious communities to run Wellness House.
