Community legacies are built where a cycle of economic mobility, education, and safety can be found. We provide cultural competency training designed to give our team fluency as they work in historically neglected neighborhoods. And we reduce crime rates, fire hazards, lead poisoning, and asbestos contamination levels by completing projects with the highest safety standards in the industry.
It’s all in an effort to create a community legacy, cultivate generational prosperity, and build collective futures.

We hosted meal events at 4 different community centers: Adams Butzel Recreation Complex, Farewell Recreation Center, Kemeny Recreation Center, and Joseph Walker Williams Center on Wednesday, November 27th. We also packed and distributed meals from They Say on Thursday, November 28th. Thank you to all of our volunteers and sponsors!
