  • A group opportunity. Invite your friends.
  • 24 people are interested

Our organization is seeking volunteers who have a passion to help in the revitalization of Detroit. We are in need of volunteers to assist with the clean-up of exterior grounds of our building that was donated to us in preparation for total rehab. The intended future use of the building will be a coffee shop, legal clinic, community gathering and employment seeking/ training center.

We are hoping that individuals and fraternities, sororities, churches civic organizations and corporations will come to lend a helping on a day of their choosing. Groups are encouraged to come and have a party while giving back to help better Detroit inner-city neighborhoods. All clean-up activities will be conducted with social distancing.

All activities performed will be done utilizing social distancing.

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.
