Change Blight to Bright.

The comeback begins.

With your help we can eliminate blight and put our communities back on their feet. Today, over one hundred thousand abandoned and blighted structures stand in the way of cleaner, safer living for Michigan residents. But together we can rid these neighborhoods of urban blight and give people the clean slate they deserve.

 

Help Eliminate Blight. Totally.

Our mission is to create safer communities through total blight elimination. We can’t just treat the symptoms; we need to treat the root cause. And we need your help. Every dollar you donate will go directly toward the removal of dangerous vacant structures, overgrown brush and dead trees, trash and other materials within our city neighborhoods.
