Our Vision

What we're about

Redeem Detroit is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that aims to revitalize neighborhoods in the city of Detroit. Our goal is to take vacant properties and rehabilitate them and then use them to help the citizens in the neighborhood where they are located. 

 

We believe that everyone deserves a second chance and that’s why we train at-risk youth, homeless veterans, and returning citizens in vocational and job readiness skills, and with these skills we help them become entrepreneurs or provide job placement as well as connect them to the resources they need. In return they help us clean up the neighborhood and eliminate blight.

Philosophy

Redeem Detroit is committed to designing services and programs reflecting:

  • A non-judgmental learning environment

  • An honoring of the individual learning process

  • The application of learning and spiritual guidance, to counseling and facilitation

  • An awareness of boundaries and personal biases
