Our Work:
Housing + Economic Development + Community Organizing

 

Housing Development

Our housing work has two goals. The first is to build a healthy, thriving, and values-based community by attracting new residents to our area, removing vacant homes, and deepening connections with our current neighbors. The second is to model a solution to the city’s twin systemic crises of a dearth of affordable housing and deteriorating neighborhoods.

Economic Development

We know that our goal of building a thriving community would be incomplete without local opportunities for work and shopping. To that end, we have trained more than 60 aspiring entrepreneurs, created a local/Muslim business directory, hosted a well-attended all-day street fair,  and begun to re-envision what our commercial corridor of Woodrow Wilson could look like over the next few years.

Community Organizing

If our work only amounted to private fundraising for home rehabs, we would fall woefully short of challenging the systemic failures that have shaped Detroit’s neighborhoods today. That’s why we seek to organize our local community around the issues that are most pressing to residents in our  impact turf, as well as  to involve Muslims from throughout the metro Detroit area in the struggle for housing, economic, and racial justice in Detroit’s neighborhoods.
