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.
