To Love. To Bring Hope. To Empower.


Because of His Love (BOHL) Outreach is committed to loving every person, bringing hope to every situation, and empowering the next generation. We are committed to providing a safe space where the people we serve can be heard, seen, and supported through various seasons in their lives. Our goal is to reestablish the community and families by providing educational and supportive services to pregnant women, their children, and fathers that will impact future generations!

Because of His Love (BOHL) Outreach began in 2008 by founders Alwyn and Vickee Walker. They shared a deep passion for the brokenhearted, the hopeless, and those deemed unworthy. This passion led them to answer God's call and begin their work throughout Detroit, to people and places where most were afraid to go. Using their own finances, they provided food, clothes, conversation, hugs, and the opportunity to receive prayer. Alwyn and Vickee never met a stranger. They opened their home to mentor others and provided a safe haven to be transparent with struggles, yet never lacking in showing the love of God to every person they encountered!

This mission went on for years until the untimely passing of Al in 2015. His wife continued to keep the dream alive until she couldn't anymore.

In 2020, after much prayer,  Al and Vickee's daughter, Lesley and son-in-love Robert, said YES to carrying the mantle and continuing the mission of BOHL Outreach. Since its re-birth, Robert and Lesley joined their pursuit and opened their homes to mentor young adults across Metro Detroit. Robert and Lesley share a passion to see families restored, which led to their latest initiative,  providing educational and supportive services; including men and women support groups, maternal infant health programs, park stewardships, and financial literacy to name a few.

Robert and Lesley are very active in their community and have the same passion as the founders; to see people healed, families restored and the City of Detroit revitalized by showing the love of God to each person they serve.


Our vision is to see the City of Detroit thriving!


Mental Health Restored!


Families Reunited!


Broken Spirits Healed!


Communities flourishing for generations to come!

"Thank you so much for bringing joy into my life! From mentally, to baby items, you have been there for me and my daughter. I love you guys and the program!" 

Elon: Community Partner at Birth Detroit

"The wrap-around services to our beloved clients has been a gift. The pregnancy and postpartum time is so much more than just accessing care; it's about feeling cared for, supported and seen. BOHL's maternal and infant program, Next Generation, helps us do that for the families at Birth Detroit. We are excited to see this partnership continue and grow when our Birth Center is in operation" 

Dominique: Maternal & Infant Program Participant

"I love that you didn't judge me, even with everything I had going on. Thank you!"
