The mission of LifeBUILDERS is to restore dignity and provide hope to the residents of Regent Park, a Northeast Detroit neighborhood. This is accomplished in three ways: by empowering our youth with life skills and providing opportunities to grow and learn in a safe environment, by reclaiming an entire neighborhood from the effects of disinvestment by providing high-quality affordable housing, and by building a community of shared values, trust and hope for the future, with each of these being grounded in the truth of God’s Word.
- We've had thousands of youth in our various youth programs, and supported hundreds of families throughout the years! We've rehabilitated over 70 buildings!
- Our neighborhood was named the most dangerous neighborhood in Detroit in 2011, this year (according to areavibes.com) our neighborhood isn't even in the top 20!
- Our goal is to restore 300 homes, build up 300 courageous young leaders, and raise 3 million dollars by 2024!
