Once a thriving community of middle class public servants, Regent Park began to hit rock bottom shortly after the turn of the century. While Detroit was in the midst of a ‘perfect storm’ of scandals, economic issues, unemployment, and more, this community was beginning to fall apart at the seams. Soon, gang activity, drugs, and other crimes began to be descriptors of this community.

It is amazing how ONE syllable, THREE letters, can literally change the trajectory of a person’s life. Even more… an entire family! Even greater… a whole community! For 13 years now, LifeBUILDERS has been bringing individuals and groups alike together to say “YES!” to revitalization in Regent Park, a community on Detroit’s far east side.


There are a number of ways in which you can partner with us. The most common way is to support the work financially. You can do that, securely through our donation page. Financially partnering is just one way. In fact, for some, that is just the beginning! If you’re considering partnering with us, consider coming and visiting our community, and seeing our work firsthand!
