Urban Development Corporation

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

Currently, UDC is actively engaged in trying to bring, stabilization, revitalization and sustainability to a 9-block inner-city neighborhood on the Northeast Side of Detroit. We have been hosting numerous Clean-up Blitzes to aid in our efforts. We could use some additional helping hands from energetic high school and college/university students across the Metropolitan Detroit Area. This represents a great opportunity for a group of students to fore fill any required community service hours.

We are encouraging groups of young adults to recruit other fellow students, family and friends for a couple of hours of community service while having fun giving back to a community in need. Select the day and time and bring your group. Come prepared to have a little fun, a party while giving back. UDC will supply all equipment and tools need for the event. All activities will be performed utilizing social distancing.

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.
