Life Remodeled recently finalized construction on a student-centered space complete with a homework lounge, arcade and laundromat with four commercial washers and dryers. The laundromat is referred to as "The Spin." It is a completely free resource for students and families to use. While it is a self-serve program, Life Remodeled is in need of some volunteers to supervise and assist the upkeep of the facility.

Tasks include: greeting families kindly, checking in/tracking loads of laundry, taking inventory of detergent and dryer sheets, sweeping, disinfecting surfaces

We would love to have the laundry room operating Monday-Friday 8am-8pm and Saturdays 10am-5pm. We ask that volunteers commit to at least one 4 hour shift per week from September to December. Please let us know if you have questions.

About LIFE REMODELED-A NONPROFIT CORPORATION

Location:

PO BOX 28508, DETROIT, MI 48228, US

Mission Statement

We exist to bridge people across divides to help transform each other’s lives - investing approximately $5 million in cash, labor and materials into one Detroit neighborhood each year. Projects are determined by the community’s needs and vision, and we assist in three areas: Remodeling a community asset, repairing owner-occupied homes, and mobilizing 10,000 volunteers to beautify 300 city blocks in six days. Throughout the process of unifying for a common mission, participants begin to realize how much they respect and need each other, which is a catalyst for long-term relationships and partnerships.

Description

Watching the news can be a painful reminder of how divided our country truly is. Race, religion and educational background are just a few divides across which we struggle to cooperate. In addition, despite sometimes living only miles apart, Americans of ample means and those living in poverty dwell in drastically different worlds. Rarely do we put forth the effort necessary to overcome the challenges of communicating and understanding one another, which cripples society’s ability to find impactful solutions.

In Metropolitan Detroit, we have witnessed well-intentioned suburban individuals and groups attempt to alleviate Detroit’s poverty crisis. We have also seen residents of the inner city make attempts to share their wealth of knowledge regarding oppressive systems that go unaddressed. Yet both are apprehensive about making the sacrifices necessary to develop meaningful relationships with one another. While financial resources are critical to urban renewal, all parties must come with the mindset that they have something to give and receive. Therefore, a different model of charity must exist where all sides are inspired to do the hard work of relationship building.

This is where Life Remodeled comes in.
