BENEFITING: Oakland Livingston Human Service Agency
Tearing down to build up.
Revive Pontiac focuses on the deconstruction of structures that are vacant, dilapidated and slated for demolition. While the demolition of these homes is an important step toward beautifying the community, Revive Pontiac's efforts focus on salvaging items from the structures, with the ultimate goal of repurposing and reselling them. Revive Pontiac is a social enterprise and a partnership between OLHSA, a Community Action Agency and Architectural Salvage Warehouse of Detroit.
What does that mean?
All profits help fund the services that OLHSA provides to individuals and families in need in the communities OLHSA serves. Those services include housing, early childhood programs, utility assistance, food assistance, education, older adult services and many more. Revive Pontiac is currently funded through a grant awarded by the Michigan Economic Development Corporation.
