The places where Detroit kids live -- that's where we focus our work.
We began a neighborhood-based children’s change effort in 2006 called Good Neighborhoods. It's a 10-year, $100 million commitment to six Detroit neighborhoods. The neighborhoods -- Brightmoor, Chadsey Condon, Cody Rouge, Northend Central Woodward, Osborn and Southwest Detroit -- were selected because of the large numbers of children living there. Each neighborhood is unique, so we take a tailored approach to how we work in each place. But there is one goal -- ensure that children have clear pathways to graduating from high school and leading successful lives as adults. To do that, we focus on four areas: high-quality education, youth development, safety, and community leadership.
Neighborhood Level Demographics
Current demographic information, including social and economic data at the neighborhood level, helps us implement and assess our work in Detroit neighborhoods. Our partner Data Driven Detroit provides that information.
