2014 was nothing short of miraculous! In partnership with the residents of Cody Rouge, Detroit Public Schools and the City of Detroit, we teamed with hundreds of Detroit-area churches, businesses and nonprofits, mobilizing over 10,000 talented volunteers in order to remodel three schools in the Cody Rouge Community. Additionally we tore down three burned-out houses, remodeled 25 homes, boarded up 254 vacant houses, beautified 303 city blocks, and completed the construction of a $1 million synthetic football field!
Although the 2014 six-day project has passed, we are still working in the Cody Rouge Community. Life Remodeled endeavors to remodel homes of current homeowners and rehabilitate vacant homes to create viable home options for new community members. By renovating two homes for the purpose of selling them, Life Remodeled aims to bring new families into Cody Rouge and to continue creating a safe environment conducive to the development of a healthy community. This will also provide economic improvement by way of real-estate growth and development. By utilizing local and regional licensed general contractors who will be encouraged to hire local laborers and tradesmen, we plan to enhance the economic well being of Cody Rouge, reducing the unemployment rate while also increasing home values.
Need + Hope + Life Remodeled = Radical Transformation with Enduring Sustainability!
