Life Remodeled is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and donations are tax deductible.
Life Remodeled exists to remodel lives—one neighborhood at a time. Our strategy includes remodeling a Detroit Public School each summer in order to create academic and athletic improvements, as well as to remove blight in the surrounding area, and create safe pathways to the school.
This summer, we will remodel Cody HIgh School and the surrounding Cody-Rouge neighborhood, an undertaking with a projected cost of $5.5 million dollars. This area has the second highest concentration of youth in all of Detroit, but also one of the highest rates of crime committed against young people in the city. In spite of these challenges, Cody High School has proudly established specialized academies of public leadership, medicine, and technology, in addition to its regular curriculum. Four years ago, Cody High School was graduating less than 40% of its students. Cody High School now graduates over 80% of its students.
With the help of thousands of volunteers and our generous donors, Life Remodeled plans to provide major renovations to Cody High School and the surrounding community. Planned projects include a new roof, electrical repairs, landscaping, the installation of a new multi-purpose athletic field, and the creation of a Medical Simulation Lab, a Leadership Lab, and a high-tech Science Technology Engineering Math (STEM) Lab. Additionally, we will remove blight and create beauty on over 100 surrounding blocks during a six-day period, August 11-16, 2014. This will include the demolition of 10 abandoned homes, the boarding of at least 100 additional abandoned homes, and remodeling at least 20 students' homes.
Join us now in the remodeling of Detroit...one neighborhood at a time!
