Adopt The Block
Time & Location
About The Event
Adopt The Block’s mission is to build community by partnering with residents to support residents’ to increase their level of engagement in their own neighborhoods and become active in solving community problems. Towards that goal TPA will organize community clean up days, canvass with community leaders to share information on resources available to families in need & provide opportunities for increased relationship building through community recreational activities. We will work within two neighborhoods throughout the summer: choosing to adopt a few blocks in the Morning Side Community on Detroit’s east side as well as the Cody-Rouge community on Detroit’s west-side. On June 24th, 2018 we will launch our efforts in the Morning Side Community, and then on July 8th, 2018 we will launch Adopt the Block at our west-side location in the Cody Rouge Community (Please read second page for details). TPA aims to increase levels of community pride, deepen resident relationships and provide a sense of cultural competence
Adopt the block will run throughout summer 2018, from June 24th - August 26th, on a bi-weekly basis. Specific Adopt the Block activities will include mowing lawns, boarding up blighted houses, community canvassing with basic needs information and local resources, and a culminating block party.
