100 Houses Volunteers Clean up Detroit Neighborhood

Aug 27, 2012 | News | 0 comments

In the inauguaural  event of The 100 Houses Project took place this past weekend as hundreds of volunteers gathered in 55 teams to board up 105 homes within a one-mile radius of Osborn High School.

Abandoned homes are a danger to children. They are frequently used by drug addicts and dealers, and can also be used by those wishing to harm children. With these homes opened and exposed, the walk to and from school and playground becomes a dangerous event every day for Detroit’s children.

The group will launch its second run when volunteers gather to safely board up 150 of the most blighted and dangerous homes in the vicinity of Cody College Preparatory Upper School of Teaching and Learning on October 27.
