We work closely with many partners to achieve our goals of making connections, building community, and transforming lives in Brightmoor and in Redford.
Aldersgate United Methodist Church
Redford Brightmoor Initiative was born out of the merger of the Redford Aldersgate and West Outer Drive United Methodist Churches. Initially a part of the merged church, RBI is now a separate 501(c)(3) but still works closely with the church.
Several organizations have become Covenant Partners with RBI, giving generously of financial resources, in-kind donations, and volunteer time.
Our current Covenant Partners are
- Aldersgate United Methodist Church
- Birmingham First United Methodist Church
- Canton Friendship United Methodist Church
- Dearborn Good Shepherd United Methodist Church
- Troy First United Methodist Church
We welcome other faith-based groups as well as other organizations to join us in this work. Please contact us if your organization is interested in becoming a Covenant Partner with Redford Brightmoor Initiative.
Individuals and families who want to make a contribution to the sustainability of Redford Brightmoor Initiative can become Brick Builders. These supporters make a pledge to contribute annually for at least three years. Rather than being designated for a specific project, the Brick Builder contributions are available for use wherever the need is greatest.
We welcome others who want to make a sustaining contribution to this effort. Please contact us if you are interested in becoming a Brick Builder partner with Redford Brightmoor Initiative.
Motown Mission Experience
We have worked closely with Motown Mission Experience for the past two summers. The enthusiastic youth and adult teams which come to Detroit through Motown Mission have done wonderful work repairing houses, cleaning up lots, and boarding up vacant homes in the neighborhood.
Other Brightmoor Groups
We also work closely with several other groups working in the Brightmoor neighborhood.
- Neighbors Building Brightmoor and the Brightmoor Farmway
