DETROIT

Ghost City

“The first thing when you drive around Detroit is the number of abandoned buildings, the ghosts of a city that was. Detroit – a city whose very name has become synonymous with economic blight, urban decay, failed schools. There was a time, not so long ago, that Detroit shook with optimism. The motor city was once the 4th largest in the United States. A bustling prosperous metropolis, by July 1967, the City began its downward decline. Race and class segregation brought the city to its knees. Detroit today, one of the poorest, most illiterate states in the nation, is still reeling.”

–Dan Rather

35.7%

 47%

43.4

second most dangerous city in America

WHAT WE’RE DOING

Making a Difference

Roma Wish team members will be assisting with community improvement initiatives alongside the CDC (Central Detroit Christian Community Development Corporation). Divided into two teams, the first group will coordinate and assist with a Summer Day Camp for disadvantaged children. Kids will get to participate in summer classes, arts and crafts, interactive field trips and gardening. Every child will receive a nutritious breakfast, snack and lunch. Our second team will work on a number of community development projects with tasks ranging from demolition to renovation and landscaping.

Nothing feels better than helping others. We’ve dedicated ourselves to Moving, Inspiring and Wowing people in times of need. From the hungry, to those in need of a safe and warm place to stay, we’re doing our heartfelt best to make a difference!

MISSION DATE:
