Urban Development Corporation

Urban Development Corporation (UDC) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to improving the quality of life for Detroit residents.

We are trying to bring stabilization, revitalization and sustainability to a 9-block area on the Northeast Side of Detroit. Currently, UDC is actively engaged in hosting inner-city Detroit Neighborhood Clean-up Blitzes and welcome participation from "groups of energetic young high school students" from across the Metropolitan Detroit, MIchigan Area to aid in our efforts.

We are encouraging groups of young adults to make a party out of volunteering by inviting family, friends and other classmates to join with you for a couple of hours of community service. Have a little party while giving back and making a difference in the life of others and satisfy requirements for completion of community service hours for school. There is much that needs to be done to improve our targeted area and we could utilize many helping hands from high school students. This is a great opportunity to satisfy required community service hours to graduate from H.S.

UDC will provide all tools needed for event. All activities will be done with social distancing and wearing of face mask.

About Urban Development Corporation

Location:

2727 Second Avenue, Suite 129, Detroit, MI 48201, US

Mission Statement

Improve the quality of life and bring about positive life-style changing experiences of low to moderate income families who live in urban communities. In carrying out our mission Urban Development Corporation serves as a catalyst in the revitalization of communities through the development of activities and programs which promote clean, drug-free, healthy, safe and enjoyable family lifestyles.

The uniqueness of our organization is our willingness to address counter productive behaviors which plague many urban communities, they include: random gunshot firing, slum lording, illegal dumping, liquor stores on nearly every corner, vandalism, and the selling of illicit drugs. These activities are major contributing factors to the rapid deterioration of inner city neighborhoods and lead to a large number of eyesore houses having to be torn down.

Description

Our efforts are currently concentrated in the following areas:

  • Beautification and clean-up of inner city neighborhoods.
  • Substance abuse awareness and prevention.
  • Broadening the horizon of inner city youth through exposure to future career opportunities, the fine arts, and recreational activities.
  • Acquisition and renovation of deteriorating properties.
  • Unemployment and underemployment.
  • Addressing environmental pollution concerns and issues.
  • Serving as a liaison between residents, businesses; local police and municipalities to alleviate illegal activity.
  • Rehab of our donated building which will be utilized as a community/employment center.
