Corporate Sponsored Clean-up of Inner-city Detroit Neighborhood - a Focus on Positive Change

Save to Favorites

ORGANIZATION: Urban Development Corporation

Urban Development Corporation (UDC) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to improving the quality of life of low to-moderate income families who live in the inner-city neighborhoods of Detroit, Michigan.

In an effort to improve the quality of life for residents on one particular block on the N.E. side of Detroit, UDC we are calling upon the Corporate Employee Volunteer Teams throughout the Metropolitan area.

We are in need of help with landscape tasks: debris "blight" removal, cutting down overgrown vegetation, trimming of brushes and weedwacking and cutting of grass.

This represents an opportunity for Employee Volunteer Teams to come out for 3 to 4 hours to help a community very much in need and have fun while doing so, engage with co-workers outside of work and contribute byway of philanthropic giving. Simply contact us with potential days and times your Team might be available.

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.
