The resurgence of Detroit will happen block by block, community by community, and day by day. The rebirth is already underway for one corner of northwest Detroit spearheaded by the Lakeridge Village Community Development Corp project. After decades of decay, both in architecture and the family ties of the community, Lakeridge continues to anchor this neighborhood with housing development that gives families a stable floor to begin to build on; and a roof over their heads to shelter them as they repair their lives.
Lakeridge has been helping families since 2006 to regain stability through providing supportive services and developing spiritual health. These individuals and families have learned how to rebuild their lives and begin the important task of becoming a new part of the community. Lakeridge Village helps to support them with transitional and permanent housing, as well as providing referrals to community resources Lakeridge must continue to develop the underpinnings of a successful community, jobs for residents, quality housing, education, and a safe neighborhood for families, children and business.
