Adopt 1-Block "Inner-City" Detroit Neighborhood

Cause Areas


It's flexible! We'll work with your schedule.


This is a Virtual Opportunity, with no fixed address.


Urban Development Corporation (UDC) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to improving the quality of life of low to moderate income families who live on the Northeast Side of Detroit.

We are trying to bring stablization, revitalization and sustainability to a 9-block area and are asking others to join in our efforts with a willingness to adopt 1-block for at least 3-months.

It is our hopes that our efforts can serve as a protype for other inner-city neighborhoods to follow. UDC is seeking participation from groups: churches, corporations, colleges/universities and civic organizations.

Things needed are: board-up/clean-up of landscape of vacant houses, assement of property ownership, development of methods to migitate criminal activity, substance abuse awareness and the engagement of residents.
