“Leaders to ReBuild Detroit” is a three-year $25 million initiative to engage Detroit’s corporate leaders in revitalizing the city. The initiative was launched with a $1 million personal cornerstone gift from General Motors Chairman and CEO Daniel Akerson.
“Leaders to ReBuild Detroit” will focus on the Morningside Commons neighborhood, serving at least 500 families by 2014 through house construction, rehabilitation, critical repairs, and energy-efficiency upgrades and weatherization projects. Additionally, these families will participate in financial literacy training, homeownership workshops and community security initiatives provided by partnering organizations. The initiative is part of Habitat’s statewide $225 million ReBuild Michigan campaign to address affordable housing needs in more than 70 Michigan counties.
