Building Families First Community Organization (BFFCO) is a nonprofit 501(c)(3). The organization was developed in 2008 to bring attention to the cycle of poverty and on-going housing disposition that was, and is still occurring in the Detroit, Michigan region. The purpose of the Neighborhood Revitalization division and Family Self-Sufficiency (FSS) program with underlying services, is to assist and encourage families into upward mobility so they may take ownership of their lives and adopt financially responsible behavior, become home owners, and independent from governmental assistance. We have assisted over 3,000 individuals thus far with housing, employment, food and medical insurance.

Our primary market is focused on individuals and families who are able-bodied and are receiving Public Housing and Housing Choice Vouchers. Our key partners include MSHDA and HUD approved housing counseling agencies and lenders. Our partners are industry-specific architects, attorneys, accountants, community agencies, colleges and universities to leverage existing community resources and expertise.

Our solution is to build partnerships with agencies and communities to acquire blighted property and to create a community plan that will mobilize efforts to fight blight, poverty and inequalities, while increasing public safety, fostering greater home ownership, and building stronger neighborhood organizations to strengthen the stability of the neighborhood
