Mission: The organization uses holistic strategies to make dramatic and immediate impact in communities and to establish foundations for long-term sustainable growth and development.
Programs: The organization's annual project includes remodeling a detroit school each summer to help create academic and athletic improvements and to restore the school as a source of pride within the community. Additionally, the organization believes in partnering with local residents to remove blight in the surrounding area and create safe and inspirational pathways to the school, helping to build up and sustain a neighborhood that radiates hope to the rest of the city. The organization continues to work in these neighborhoods for years to come to enhance the schools,revitalize housing, increase employment opportunities and cultivate long term relationships, all of which enable the development of healthy and thriving communities.
I highly recommend this wonderful organization! The total community concept gives them the ability to accomplish many aspects of the needs of the community. Repurposing The former School building into the Durfee Center opportunity hub (which is so amazing!) and repairing owner-occupied homes, and annually mobilizing 10,000 volunteers in six days to beautify the four square miles surrounding community are just some of the meaningful work being done by Life Remodeled.
I became involved with Life Remodeled this year on behalf of my company as a donor and a volunteer. I am so touched by the work that they are doing. I cannot say enough good things about this organization and how strongly I feel about being involved. Thank you for the work that you are doing!
