Inner-city Detroit Neighborhood Volunteer Opportunity

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 Detroit. We are focused and dedicated to bringing stabilization, revitalization and sustainability to a 9-block area on the N.E. Side.

UDC is in the initial phases of rehabbing a house on and we welcome the opportunity to have volunteers to lend a helping hand to aid in our efforts. We could use some help with clean-up in preparation for renovations and landscape. We believe giving back is a great opportunity to engage with others.

We would be delighted to have individuals, groups, civic organization, high schools, corporations, churches, sororities and fraternities join in our efforts to make a difference in the life of others for a couple of hours and have fun doing so. All tools and supplies needed will be provided by UDC.

About Urban Development Corporation


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.


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.
