What We Do

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.

Interesting Info

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 a total of 100 homes by 2022!
