LifeBUILDERS was established in 2005. It began in a small building on Detroit's NE side in a neighborhood distinguished as Detroit's most deadly zip code.
The community suffered from nearly 20 years of disinvestment which led to deficits in education, public services, job opportunities and hope.
Lifebuilders addresses these deficits in the following ways: 1)Empower the youth with life skills that will lead to success in life and allowing them to experience the love of Christ. Lifebuilders ministers to over 200 youth ages K-12 throughout the year. 2)Reclaiming the neighborhood from blight and abandonment by purchasing and rehabbing abandoned drug and foreclosed homes and inhabiting them with good families. Lifebuilders has been successful in acquiring 30 homes and 2 apartment building to date. 3) by Building Community Lifebuilders is providing residents an opportunity to be part of the reclamation of the community through block clubs and community events including our annual Christmas Store.
Lifebuilders exists to restore dignity and bring hope to a Northeast Detroit neighborhood that has experienced the effects of disinvestment for 2 decades.
We believe in redemption, we believe in opportunity, we believe in community through the unifying love and grace of Jesus Christ. We believe in hope.
Empowering The Youth. Reclaiming Our Neighborhood. Building Communitas.
