One block at a time.
In April of 2014 We joined forces with Motor City Blight Busters of Detroit. Together, we are building Veterans Green Housing, Job Training & Small Business Incubator with Farm City, Artist's and Veteran's Villages in the Old Redford district of Detroit.
We were looking for a firehouse to rebuild and found an entire community instead.
You remember we are wanted to find a firehouse to park the bus and create and small business to fuel our volunteer relief efforts while using Detroit as a training ground for disaster response. Once we met John George and the rest of his Motor City Blight Buster crew we knew we had found the right partner and community to work with.
Once we are fully operational we will provide veterans with housing, basic emergency management and safety training with federally recognized certifications to become a first responders in case of a natural or man made disaster.
Once they completed their basic safety training veterans will be able to access course and gain on the job training in several sustainable career fields.
