THE STORY:

LIFE REMODELED wrote -

WHAT DOES $26 BUY? A SAFER DENBY NEIGHBORHOOD FOR ONE CHILD.

Blight is more than an unsightly problem, it is an enabler of criminal activity. Tall weeds, overgrown brush and unchecked illegal dumping create line-of-sight obstructions which allow criminals to hide and prey on the unsuspecting.  Vacant houses are magnets for drugs, prostitution and human trafficking.  

The Denby community is among Detroit’s most-blighted neighborhoods. But that is going to change this summer. Between August 1 and 6, and expected 10,000 volunteers will work together with students, community residents, churches and businesses to clean up 300 blocks surrounding Denby schools.  

That's pretty great right? But what happens after the project is finished?  

One year following Life Remodeled’s 2014 Project in Cody Rouge, crime dropped in 10 of 11 categories, including a 47 percent reduction in homicides.  

We're convinced blight removal makes life safer for kids in Detroit communities.  Based on previous expenditures, we've also discovered that for every $26 donated, safety increases for one child in the Denby neighborhood.
