What if we just said “Yes!”?
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, community on Detroit’s far east side.
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.
We are seeing the effects of our “YES!”. Hear from others who have said “YES!” over the years!
