In a North West Detroit neighborhood, homes that sold 12 years ago for $150,000 are now worth about 5% of that! At that time, these homes were loved and enjoyed by their occupants. Today many are burned out, overgrown, abandoned and/or falling down.
Build It Detroit says, "enough is enough! " In the past 3 years since we have been operating in this community, we are seeing the strength coming back. Streets are cleaner, sidewalks are being repaired and neighbors are connecting and engaging with one another more and more.
Soon, these proud Detroit residents will be enjoying each other’s company with recreation at the new neighborhood park. Houses that are currently a danger to their families will no longer exist. This will be a vibrant thriving community!!
All monies raised in this campaign will be dedicated to the necessary demolition of houses and blight removal.
The team here at Build It Detroit thanks you for partnering with us to see this vision become a reality. We are so grateful for the major part you play.
