360 Detroit, Inc. will be a catalyst for safe, vibrant neighborhoods driven by a strong sense of community inclusion, connectedness and hope.
WE ARE STRONGER TOGETHER!
360 Detroit, Inc. began with an image of a connected community with neighborhoods that reflected the vitality of the past Virginia Park neighborhood. Although the work began with a single man’s image and the support of a few, it has grown into a community effort with benefits realized for all that are involved. From projects infused with volunteer-fueled solutions to community engagement events, 360 Detroit, Inc. has worked with the community residents to revitalize our neighborhoods to one project at a time. We remain committed to connecting community members, building trust and sustaining engagement for the benefit of the community.
The challenge was to find within our own neighborhood the solution to create safe, vibrant neighborhoods driven by a strong sense of community inclusion, connectedness and hope.
360 Detroit, Inc. provides services that empower and improve the quality of life for individuals and families. The organization is dedicated to assisting people in becoming self-sufficient, anchored, stabilized and well-rounded members of society.
From the simplistic start of engaging and organizing residents for clean-ups and social gatherings, 360 Detroit, Inc. has worked diligently to be a “Conduit for Change”. While creating an environment for revitalization and hope, we continue to grow at an accelerated pace.
“Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much.”
