Urban Development Corporation (UDC) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to improving the quality of life of low to moderate income families who live in Detroit. We are focused and dedicated to bringing stabilization, revitalization and sustainability to a 9-block area on the N.E. Side.

We've been engaged in hosting numerous group clean-up blitzes which entitle: grass cutting and edging, trimming of brushes, vegetation removal, trimming of brushes , rototilling, seedomg and stump removal, etc. Also, UDC is rehabbing a house within our targeted area.

UDC is calling upon Fraternities / Sororities to aid in our efforts for improved inner-city Detroit neighborhoods. All landscape tools for this volunteer opportunity will be provided. We just ask that your Fraternity or Sorority set a date and bring a group with a willing heart to volunteer for 4 hours and have lots of fun while doing so.

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.
