SHARE Detroit Celebrates Reading Month!

“Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot. Nothing is going to get better. It’s not.”
-Dr. Seuss

Last month was National Reading Month but at SHARE Detroit, we are proud that many nonprofits on our platform have missions that support reading, literacy and education.

While there is no doubt that all of the nonprofits on our SHARE platform are leaving a significant impact, we are happy to recognize the following few that support the value of reading and literacy.

InsideOut Literary Arts

InsideOut's mission is to inspire students to think broadly, create bravely, and share their voices with the wider world.

Since 1995, InsideOut Literary Arts has helped over 65,000 youth in Detroit build their literary and academic skills through creative writing.

On International Women’s Day, we would like to announce the election of Cheryl P. Johnson, CEO of COTS, as the current board chair of New Detroit, Inc. Ms. Johnson is an experienced non-profit leader and the first person of color, and Black woman, to lead in the racial equity organization’s 55-year history.

“Cheryl is purpose-driven and accomplished. She and the board made history by finally electing the first person of color and Black woman as chair. As the longtime CEO of COTS, she transformed the organization’s business model into a sophisticated nonprofit enterprise, using the Passport to Self-Sufficiency model to change the legacy of generational poverty. Cheryl manages multiple facilities, with a budget of $8 million,” said New Detroit CEO Michael Rafferty.

The goal in mind was to provide support to help Moms keep their self-worth and self-confidence strong.
